The use of whole exome capture and whole genome sequencing employing next generation sequencing (NGS) technology has created immense quantities of data, which must be analyzed and annotated for biological significance. Increasingly, these techniques are being used in the clinical setting in order to diagnose and manage disease cases with a significant genetic component. The resulting terabyte-scale data generated from NGS precludes a labor-intensive approach to data analysis and annotation. For these reasons, we have developed Mercury, a semi-automated pipeline for clinical NGS data analysis and annotation.
An analysis pipeline supporting clinical sequencing is both necessary and feasible for NGS.
