ABS4NGS : Algorithmic, Bioinformatic and Software solutions for the analysis of Next Generation Sequencing data

ABS4NGS is a multi-disciplinary research project funded by the French "Investment for the Future" program. It started in 2012 and brings together seven project partners from various French institutions and companies.

The aim of ABS4NGS is to develop new methods and algorithms for the analysis of data produced by high-throughput sequencing (HTS), also called Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) data. HTS is a rapidly evolving family of technologies with many applications, ranging from basic biology to translational research and soon to personalized medicine. Yet, HTS technologies raise huge challenges in statistics and bioinformatics to store, analyze and exploit the unprecedented wealth of data they produce. The project will provide innovative solutions to address these issues.
