Test-drive the GATK tools and Best Practices pipelines on Terra
Check out this blog post to learn how you can get started with GATK and try out the pipelines in preconfigured workspaces (with a user-friendly interface!) without having to install anything.
Plans for Queue
Dear GATK Team,
I am wondering about future plans for the Queue framework. I find it a useful framework to write and run pipelines in computing clusters. However, I found myself often wanting to use Queue in pipelines without any GATK walkers at all. Are there any plans in the future to release Queue as its own, GATK-independent package?
I know that internally there are some shared classes (e.g. the command line parser), and refactoring them so that Queue can be GATK-free may require a little more work. But I'm just interested to know if there are already plans to do this (or perhaps even already ongoing).
