Genomic Data Analysis in Scala (Open-Source Talk)
Scala (and Apache Spark) have become popular choices across several organizations specializing in genomic data analysis.
I’ll discuss one, the Parallel Genomic Analysis Toolkit (Pageant; https://github.com/hammerlab/pageant), including:
- its incorporation of increasingly complex Scala features/paradigms (typelevel libraries, macros, etc.),
- its unusual and modularity-oriented project-management, build, and release processes, and
- reflections on Scala’s strengths and weaknesses in the bioinformatics arena.
No prior genomics-domain knowledge is required.
