I am curious though to chunk out such large data is something like hadoop/HBase and the like of those platforms, are those whats being used?

It’s a combination of our home-grown sequencing pipeline which we use across the board, and then a specific COG-UK analysis of the genomes themselves.  This pipeline is common to all consortium members who are contributing sequence data.  It’s a Nextflow pipeline, and the code is here:


Being nextflow, you can run it on anything for which nextflow has a backend scheduler.   It supports data from both Illumina and Oxford Nanopore sequencers.
