Spatial Transcriptomics on the Seven Bridges Platform

As our understanding of biology deepens, many researchers are moving away from bulk gene expression analyses to single-cell analyses. However, current RNA-Seq methods that assay pooled RNA from tissue samples, or even from single cells, fail to conserve the spatial distribution of gene expression within the original tissue. In addition, …

Circulating Tumor DNA Analysis on the Seven Bridges Platform

Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) has brought significant improvements in all areas of biotechnology and healthcare — and cancer screening is no exception. The latest game-changer is liquid biopsy, a novel and challenging NGS application. By directly measuring and analyzing circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA) in blood, liquid biopsy is a promising, …

The GA4GH Workflow Execution Challenge: evaluating reproducibility and portability across platforms

Large-scale, geographically distributed genomics analysis efforts, such as the PanCancer Analysis of Whole Genomes (PCAWG) project, highlight a trend in our community towards moving compute to where data resides. For PCAWG, this was out of necessity as the genomes for ~2,800 cancer donors were stored across 8 different locations around …
