Wednesday 5th June 2019 - Amsterdam

Join Databricks at Dutch Data Science Week in Amsterdam. This year's theme is ‘The Impact of AI on Society,’ and the goal of this week is to provide data scientists and organisations a platform for innovation, education, inspiration, and networking.

Databricks Technical Director of Healthcare, Frank Austin Nothaft, will walkthrough how the Databricks Unified Analytics Platform for Genomics simplifies the end-to-end process of turning raw sequencing data into actionable insights at scale. Introduced by the original creators of Apache Spark, this platform makes it simple to deploy Spark-based bioinformatics tools on cloud computing, and rapidly accelerates common genomic analyses.

Join this session to learn how to:
  • Call variants, both in a single sample and across multiple samples, using our accelerated GATK4 pipelines
  • Use Spark SQL to characterise the association of variants in a population with phenotype
  • Use machine learning to model genome-wide disease risk across multiple variants associated with a phenotype of interest

Key technologies employed: GATK4/Variant calling, Genotype-phenotype association tests, population scale risk-modelling via ML, ML model training/deployment.
