DNASTAR Next-Gen Sequencing Software Solutions


Exome Assembly

DNASTAR's Lasergene Genomics Suite software allows users to effortlessly assemble exome data against a genomic reference sequence and perform comprehensive post-assembly analysis, including identifying SNPs and structural variants, and reviewing coverage. Features of the Lasergene Genomics Suite software include:

  • Support for both single-end and paired-end data
  • The ability to assemble multiplexed data or multiple samples simultaneously
  • Large-scale SNP comparisons across individuals and groups
  • Advanced gene filtering based on the level of disruption to each gene caused by variations
  • Support for all major sequencing technologies
  • For more information on using Lasergene Genomics Suite for your exome assembly projects, this brief video gives an overview of the workflow:
