What's NEW:

Project Fourtytwo released for preview. http://www.fourty-two.org or http://fourtytwo.azurewebsites.net/ This is BOW's first original work. Together with tools already here you can have your own NGS pipeline on Windows Azure. It has been internally tested for a while on human sequence data. We also did a demo of the running system at Microsoft eScience Workshop 2012 in Chicago. Check it out!

https://github.com/xied75/bwa.

Short survey: if you don't mind telling me your affiliation and a paragraph about why you plan to run these tools on Windows, or some suggestions to the next tool I should work on, either via Codeplex or Github, or email, I would be very thankful! :)
