Google Genomics: Qwik Start
Google Genomics helps the life science community organize the world’s genomic information and make it accessible and useful. Big genomic data is here today, with petabytes rapidly growing toward exabytes. Google Genomics is an API that is part of Google Cloud Platform. Through this and other add-ons you can apply the same technologies that power Google Search and Maps to securely store, process, explore, and share large, complex datasets.
In this lab you’ll use Google’s implementation of the htsget protocol and SAM Tools to create a project and view some public data.
This is an introductory level lab that shows you the basics of setting up and using this GCP service. It assumes little or no prior experience with Google Genomics.
