PMID: 29699486
DOI: 10.1186/s12859-018-2157-7

[…] mode instance of the cancersysdb for the organization of genomic data from in-house studies. it is used in combination with the recently published cancer genomics data processing workflow system quickngs cancer [] which extends our ngs bioinformatics suite quickngs [] and allows highly scalable and standardized analysis of cancer ngs data with minimum hands-on analysis time. various features […]

PMCID: 5814445
PMID: 29449575
DOI: 10.1038/s41467-017-02688-6

[…] out at the ccg. for electropherogram analysis snapgene (v2.8.2, snapgene) and 4peaks (v1.8, nucleobytes) were used., major analysis steps were executed through our own ‘cancer pipeline’ within the quickngs framework and downstream semantic web applications. thus, mutation analysis results are written in the rdf/n3 (resource description framework) format, and stored in a jetty-6.1.26 servlet […]

PMCID: 5683667
PMID: 29158876
DOI: 10.1016/j.csbj.2017.10.001

[…] many off-the-shelf pipeline solutions for commonly used analysis tasks, which can however be modified in a flexible and interactive way. other publicly available analysis workflow systems include quickngs , , chipster , exscalibur , and many others (). regarding the setup of the overall architecture, the daily operation and the choice of the particular tools, especially in customized […]

PMCID: 5478265
PMID: 28632132
DOI: 10.7554/eLife.25770.014

[…] read of 2 × 100 bp on the illumina**hiseq 2000 sequencer using v3 chemistry resulted in 39-44mreads/sample (7.9–9.7 gb) and a ratio of bases above q30 of 90.2%. rna-seq data were analyzed using the quickngs pipeline, described elsewhere () (n = 3 for npy/agrp- and n = 2 for pomc-expressing neurons)., statistically significant (p<0.01) altered genes between the two neuronal populations […]

PMID: 27809788
DOI: 10.1186/s12864-016-3189-x

[…] (applied biosystems). the pooled, indexed libraries were loaded and analysed on an illumina gaiix sequencer using the 2 × 100-bp v3 protocol., next-generation sequencing data were analysed using quickngs, a high-throughput next-generation sequencing analysis pipeline []: fast qc (babraham bioinformatics), as well as read statistics derived from the samtools packages, were used to check […]
