Genomic data has become ubiquitous for bioinformaticians; however, successfully inferring biological meaning depends upon the sensitive prediction of differences between genomes. The most popular method to infer short sequence variants is the Genome Analysis Toolkit (GATK). While GATK provides rigorous guidelines, the methods require knowledge-intensive refinement as software and sequencing technologies advance. A recent advancement

Cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) scanning provides a method to diagnose cardiac disease. For obtaining an effective image, the standard procedure of CMR requires patients to hold their breath during the scanning, but it is difficult for frail patients in clinic. Furthermore, standard CMR imaging depends upon averaging together regular cardiac cycles, which is disrupted by
