Supported File Types


SeqMan NGen





SeqMan NGen is included within the Lasergene Genomics Suite. Below are the file types supported for import for both normal workflows and special workflows.


Note: SeqMan NGen supports the export of data in .sqd, .bam, and .fas formats and can generate reports in .txt format.

1 SeqMan NGen does not support ABI files without base calls.
2 Should have an associated .qual file with the same file name and a .qual extension. The .qual file must be in the same folder with the sequence file in order for the quality scores to be used.
