Deep Variant as a Nextflow pipeline
A Nextflow pipeline for running the Google DeepVariant variant caller.
What is DeepVariant and why in Nextflow?
The Google Brain Team in December 2017 released a Variant Caller based on DeepLearning: DeepVariant.
In practice, DeepVariant first builds images based on the BAM file, then it uses a DeepLearning image recognition approach to obtain the variants and eventually it converts the output of the prediction in the standard VCF format.
