Closha: Bioinformatics workflow system for the analysis of massive sequencing data
Ko et al.of the Korean BioInformation Center discuss their Closha web service for large-scale genomic data analysis in this 2018 paper published in BMC Bioinformatics. Noting a lack of rapid, cost-effective genomics workflow capable of running all the major genomic data analysis application in one pipeline, the researchers developed a hybrid system that can combine workflows. Additionally, they developed an add-on tool that handles the sheer size of genomic files and the speed with which they transfer, reaching transfer speeds "of up to 10 times that of normal FTP and HTTP." They conclude that "Closha allows genomic researchers without informatics or programming expertise to perform complex large-scale analysis with only a web browser."
