DRAW+SneakPeek: DNA Resequencing Analysis Workflow

DRAW (DNA Resequencing Analysis Workflow) automates the entire workflow of taking raw sequence reads through various quality control procedures to calling genomic variants, while also allows individual steps to be selectively executed. DRAW considerably reduces processing time by utilizing High-Performance Computing (HPC) facilities, including Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2). An optional component, SneakPeek provides an effective interface for reviewing the abundant quality metrics collected while DRAW proceeds. It helps assess sequencing quality of the assayed samples and is particularly useful for diagnosing sequencing problems. Both DRAW and SneakPeek are freely available with documentations under MIT license. EC2 users can launch DRAW's and SneakPeek's Amazon Machine Images (AMIs) on Amazon Cloud. Overview of the workflow:
