DNASTAR Next-Gen Sequencing Software Solutions


RNA-Seq Alignment and Analysis

DNASTAR's Lasergene Genomics Suite includes software that allows users to quickly and easily align next-gen RNA reads against a reference genome, and then perform in-depth analysis of the aligned data. Features of the software enable you to:

  • Align and analyze any size RNA-Seq data set, from bacteria to human - check out our benchmarks below.
  • View multiple conditions and annotations
  • Identify patterns in two, three or more intersecting sets of data
  • Compare RNA-Seq data to ChIP-Seq or microarray data
  • Export data sets and reads for SNP detection and further analysis
  • For more information on using Lasergene Genomics Suite for your RNA-Seq projects, this brief video gives an overview of the workflow:
