A new utility is developed to convert variant calling format (VCF) files into HL7 FHIR format for the purpose of genomics electronic health records (EHR) integration. This is known as vcf2fhir [1]. Keep Reading

Installing Bismark on Ubuntu


Bismark is a bioinformatics tool to map bisulfite treated sequencing reads to a genome [1]. It also determines cytosine methylation sites. In this article, we will install Bismark on Ubuntu. Keep Reading

FiNGS- A New Software providing Filters for Next Generation Sequencing


We use somatic variant callers to detect mutations in cancer samples by comparing sequencing data tumor and normal sample pairs. This is followed by some ad-hoc filtering that may produce low precision data resulting in a large number of false positives. Keep Reading
