Until recently, sequencing has primarily been carried out in large genome centers who also invested heavily in developing the computational infrastructure to enable post sequencing analysis. The recent advancements in sequencing technologies have lead to a wide dissemination of sequencing and we are now seeing many sequencing projects being undertaken in small laboratories. However, the limited accessibility to the computational infrastructure and high quality bioinformatic tools needed to enable analysis remains a serious road-block. The cloud computing and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) technologies can help address this barrier. We deploy the Atlas2 Cloud Pipeline for personal genome analysis via the Genboree Workbench using software-as-a-service model. We report on a successful case study of personal genome analysis using this pipeline.
