Comparing SNPs Identification by CLC and SeqMan from Transcriptome Sequencing Data
Sajnani M.R., Bhatt V.D., and Joshi C.G.
International Journal of Computational Biology, June 2013; 4: 56-60.
SeqMan NGen and SeqMan Pro were compared to CLC Bio in terms of predicting potential SNPs from human buccal cancer and healthy trancriptome data from Roche 454 sequencing data. The study found that the "performance of SeqMan seems better than that of CLC in terms of utility and accuracy."
