SAMQA System. The SAMQA system can run either on a single machine, a distributed cluster, or across heterogeneous servers using HDFS. The tests are run against the stored BAM/SAM files and the output is generated as key/value pairs. The results can be explored using the generated reports and visualizations, or through R. SAMQA can also operate in batch mode so that it can be run as part of an automated pipeline.
