Cloudgene is a platform for Hadoop with the overall goal to build Software As A Service (SaaS) approaches for currently available and future Hadoop programs. By connecting Hadoop applications to Cloudgene, a powerful web application can be created within minutes. Cloudgene supports the complete workflow including data transfer, program execution and data export.

Getting started

Who uses Cloudgene?

Cloudgene lives from its applications. Therefore, we’ve already developed two SaaS approaches (see below) and tested available MapReduce programs in the field of Genomics such as HadoopBam, Seal, Crossbow, Cloudburst or Myrna. If you’re interested to integrate your program please let us know.

Michigan Imputation Server

In cooperation with the University of Michigan, Gonçalo Abecasis & Christian Fuchsberger

This server provides a free genotype imputation service. You can upload GWAS genotypes (VCF or 23andMe format) and receive phased and imputed genomes in return. Our server offers imputation from HapMap, 1000 Genomes (Phase 1 and 3), CAAPA and the updated Haplotype Reference Consortium (HRC version r1.1) panel.


In cooperation with the University of Innsbruck

mtDNA-Server provides a free service for the analysis of human mitochondrial DNA data, currently focusing on reliable identification of heteroplasmy (>= 1%) and contamination. mtDNA-Server can be executed without any user login. We also provide post-processing guidelines that should be applied after each automated analysis.
