ngs_toolkit is a Python library for the analysis of NGS data.
Its goals are to provide a highly customizable set of objects and tools that interact with each other to create data processing and analysis workflows in both a interactive and scripted way.
ngs-toolkit is unique in the following aspects:
- Includes tried-and-tested (and published) workflows for end-to-end analysis of NGS data, while at the same time allowing high customization;
- Tailored for well-established NGS data types, but supporting arbitrary data types;
- Its target audience are mid-level bioinfomaticians which want to “get it done” and focus on interpretation of results while at the same time allowing running workflows with minimal programming experience.
ngs-toolkit is reaching maturity, with a stable API (from version 0.14 on), improving documentation and increasing test coverage.
