Abstract: High-throughput genome sequencing has rapidly revolutionized biomedical research. Oceans of next-gen sequencing data have been produced, and more data is being generated at a faster pace. How to extract information and generate new biological knowledge from NGS data offers unprecedented challenges. Compared to the current capability in data production, our ability in data mining needs a significant overhaul. Solving key biological questions and improving health care will rely on efficient mining of genome sequencing data.
