A Bioinformatics Workflow for Comprehensive Detection and Prioritization of Variants with PacBio HiFi Reads

Over the past few years, many tools have been developed to enable comprehensive variant detection from PacBio HiFi reads. This talk describes a flexible, modular workflow for variant detection and prioritization from HiFi whole-genome sequencing data, including open-source tools for quality control, alignment, small variant detection, and phasing, structural variant detection, genotyping of tandem repeats, and de novo assembly. This pipeline is available on GitHub as a Snakemake workflow and has been adapted into a Cromwell WDL workflow by Microsoft Genomics.
