Introduction to QuickNGS
Next-Generation Sequencing has set new standards in the depth and accuracy of molecular genetic analyses. Due to reduced processing time and cost, it has become an increasingly popular tool in life sciences and the amounts of data produced are growing bigger and bigger. This tremendous challenge in the field of data analysis has posed the need for standardized workflows which optimally use the computing and human resources.
QuickNGS is a production environment for quick batch-wise analysis of Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) data in high-throughput laboratories. The core of the system is formed by a MySQL database containing all experimental data and meta data that are required to do the analysis. The software uses this information to control the overall workflow at a maximized degree of automation.
