Abstract

Bisulfite sequencing is a technique that can be combined with next-generation sequencing approaches to analyze DNA methylation patterns in a genome wide scale. The GATK framework is a new Java framework for fast-developing NGS applications including capabilities for automatic shared-memory parallelization. This work presents the design and initial performance results of a methylation caller for next-generation bisultife sequencing based on the GATK framework.
