Goldfinch uses Hail to analyze vast amounts of genomic data as part of their Kidney Genome Atlas (https://www.goldfinchbio.com/). Hail is an open-source, python-based data analytics library with extra genomic data types and methods for working with genomic data. Hail sees wide use in the life sciences community, but requires many customizations to take full advantage of AWS's EMR platform.
Join Jack, Privo's Director of Engineering, for a deep dive on AWS's EMR platform, how Privo was able to build a custom, AWS-native genomics processing pipeline using Hail, and some pitfalls you might run into during development (and how to avoid them!)
