Cookie Monster is a tool for triaging the huge amounts of sequencing (and related) data by its metadata, from various sources, for opportunistic/proactive downstream processing by HGI.

Cookie Monster is a tool for triaging the huge amounts of sequencing (and related) data by its metadata, from various sources, for opportunistic/proactive downstream processing by HGI.

Sequencing pipelines generate a lot of data, which is only going to increase as time goes on. These data require further processing before being delivered to analysts. However, at the expanding rate, there is too much for one person (or even a team of people) to deal with efficiently. Given the time data can take to process, an untenable backlog builds, exacerbating the problem further.
