Go Genomics is a new framework for writing and executing distributed bioinformatics pipelines. Its goal is to make it as easy to analyze genomic data as it is to work with data in the web development world. It provides a consistent interface for working with biological sequence data, focused on performance, interoperability and clean abstractions. Genomics is the field of molecular biology that focuses on the study of genomes. A genome is an organism’s complete set of DNA, including all of its genes. A genome can be mapped through various means. A map, in turn, simplifies identification and isolation of desired specific genes for further analysis. Knowledge about a genome can also be used to identify genetic diseases and genetic predispositions for various diseases within a population. Popular Go Genomics open source libraries include: arvados -open source platform; goleft - bioinformatics tools distributed under MIT license; lollipops - Lollipopstyle mutation diagrams for annotating genetic variations.
