Data analysis – still a bottleneck!
With the many NGS machines around in the field, we daily produce tremendous amounts of sequencing data. However, at the end of the day, all the data have to be analyzed and interpreted. In many cases, this step is still a bottleneck.
Please check the video below which is an interview with Lex Nederbragt, Bioinformatician at the Norwegian High-Throughput Sequencing Centre in Oslo, on this topic. He discusses the fact that the analysis tools which are available do not fully fulfill the needs of the researchers. In this context, he also discusses the use of open source and commercial software tools.
