We have reached the era of full genome sequencing using high throughput sequencing technologies pouring out gigabases of reads in a day. To fully benefit from such a profusion of data high performance tools and systems are needed to extract the information lying within the sequences. This paper provides an overview of the evolution of high-throughput sequencing and the tools, infrastructure and data management developing in this space to support a key area in personalized medicine. The paper concludes by providing an outlook in the future of such technologies and their applications and how they might shape clinical governance.
