1000 Genomes Phase 3 Reanalysis with DRAGEN 3.5 - Data Lakehouse Ready

bioinformatics biology genetic genomic Homo sapiens life sciences parquet population genetics vcf


The 1000 Genomes Project is an international collaboration which has established the most detailed catalogue of human genetic variation, including SNPs, structural variants, and their haplotype context. There were a total of 3202 individuals sequenced as part of Phase 3 of this project. The high coverage samples were processed using the Illumina DRAGEN v3.5.7b pipeline and are available at s3://1000genomes-dragen/. This dataset contains the VCFs transformed to Parquet/ORC in 3 different schemas - partitioned by samples, partitioned by chromosome and a nested data format. These representations of the 1000 Genomes DRAGEN data are stored in Parquet/ORC format and can be queried through Amazon Athena. To add these tables to your Glue Data Catalog and for sample queries on this dataset, please refer to the link in our Documentation.
