Thanks to substantial improvements in the cost and throughput of DNA sequencing machines, genomic data may soon make personalized medicine a reality. However, significant processing is needed to turn raw DNA strings captured by sequencers into clinically useful data, and modern DNA processing software can take up to a week to run. In this talk, we'll look at how we reconstruct genomes from the raw sequence data, and we introduce ADAM, an Apache Spark-based API for accelerating genome processing pipelines.
