Aozan: an automated post-sequencing data-processing pipeline

Bioinformatics. 2017 Jul 15;33(14):2212-2213. doi: 10.1093/bioinformatics/btx154.


Motivation: Data management and quality control of output from Illumina sequencers is a disk space- and time-consuming task. Thus, we developed Aozan to automatically handle data transfer, demultiplexing, conversion and quality control once a run has finished. This software greatly improves run data management and the monitoring of run statistics via automatic emails and HTML web reports.

Availability and implementation: Aozan is implemented in Java and Python, supported on Linux systems, and distributed under the GPLv3 License at: . Aozan source code is available on GitHub: .
