1000 Genomes BAM files (Helix)Date: 27 March 2013 11:03:25
From: Helix Systems Staff (staff@HELIX.NIH.GOV)
The Helix Systems staff maintains a small collection of 1000 genomes data (vcf files) in /fdb/1000genomes/. We are considering maintaining a copy of the BAM files (alignments) from 1000 Genomes. These files are very large (currently 132 TB total, and growing), and since disk space is always in short supply, we need to seriously consider their value to the Helix/Biowulf user community before downloading them. * Have you ever used the 1000 Genomes BAM files? * Do you currently have a copy of any of the 1000 Genomes data on your Helix/Biowulf account? * Do you plan to use the 1000 Genomes BAM files? If so, when? Thanks for your input! Helix Systems Staff.
