Next-generation sequencing is now an established method in genomics, and massive amounts of sequencing data are being generated on a regular basis. Analysis of the sequencing data is typically performed by lab-specific in-house solutions, but the agreement of results from different facilities is often small. General standards for quality control, reproducibility, and documentation are missing.; We developed NGS-pipe, a flexible, transparent, and easy-to-use framework for the design of pipelines to analyze whole-exome, whole-genome, and transcriptome sequencing data. NGS-pipe facilitates the harmonization of genomic data analysis by supporting quality control, documentation, reproducibility, parallelization, and easy adaptation to other NGS experiments.
