DNASTAR Software in Core Facilities


DNASTAR Next-Gen Sequencing Software in Core Facilities

DNASTAR has long been known as the gold-standard for sequence analysis software used by life scientists worldwide. Lesser known however, is that our Lasergene Genomics Suite software also has a strong and growing presence in small to mid-sized core facilities.

Why? See a few of the reasons listed below.


Supporting Clinical Research

DNASTAR's Lasergene Genomics Suite makes it easy for you to support clinical research leveraging next-generation sequencing (NGS) data. With the Lasergene Genomics Suite you can:

  • Support Clinical Research and Cancer Genomics
  • Process data from all majore NGS platforms (Illumina, Ion Torrent, Pacific Biosciences, and 454).
  • Have confidence with industry leading accuracy of >99.8%.
  • Combine and analyze phenotypic and genotypic data.
  • Leverage proven pipelines that get you to the answer faster.
  • Handle data from very large cohorts.
  • Utilize right-sized computational and storage capacity, as needed.
  • For downstream analysis, the software offers:

  • Assembly visualization and annotation.
  • Accurate insertion and deletion identification.
  • Multi-sample SNP analysis.
  • Multi-sample copy number variation (CNV) analysis.
  • Phenotypic metadata import.
  • dbNSFP, dbSNP, COSMIC, GERP and custom SNP annotations.
  • Association studies.

    Comprehensive, Integrated Pipelines

    Lasergene Genomics Suite provides all of the software you need for next-gen sequence assembly and analysis in a single, integrated package. We support Linux, as well as Macintosh and Windows, and can run just as easily on a desktop computer using a user-friendly GUI as we can an overclocked, high-end machine running automated scripts. We accept all major next-gen and third-gen sequencing technologies, making it simple to work with your data for any type of project, including de novo or reference-guided genome assemblies, targeted resequencing, metagenome and population assemblies, cancer genomics and clinical research, RNA-Seq, ChIP-Seq, and miRNA alignment and analysis, and more.

    Minimal Start-Up Time Required

    Whether you provide a completed assembly to the end-users, or simply provide data files for end-users to assemble, Lasergene Genomics Suite is extremely user-friendly and easy to learn. Although most find our software to be very intuitive, we provide outstanding resources to support our customers in their endeavors, including a robust and growing library of video tutorials,  free online webinars led by our own scientists and technical experts, as well as the best phone and email support around.


    Competitive Pricing

    We recognize that one size does not fit all, so we offer several different licensing options for Lasergene Genomics Suite, so that we can best meet your specific needs. Many core facilities take advantage of our site license option, which gives you an unlimited number of licenses for the product you purchase, and you may install the software on as many computers as you wish. Even groups as small as 15-20 users often find that purchasing a site license is both the most convenient as well as the lowest cost-per-use option. Also, by fixing the investment today, you lock in favorable pricing for future years. Request a quote for more information.
