Abstract

DNA is often referred to as the source code of life; it encodes the proteins that control the
functioning of our cells and plays a huge role in our health. The publication of the human
reference genome in 2003, combined with sustained technological advances in genome
sequencing ever since, have transformed the field of biomedical research, and have led to an explosion of the amount of data being generated. However, scientists typically are not trainedin the skills required to manage and analyse these large datasets. Furthermore, bioinformatics tools and workflows tend to be very complex, and often require programming skills to run.As a result, researchers often rely on bioinformaticians to perform the data analyses for them.
