QSeq - Software for RNA-Seq and ChIP-Seq Analysis


QSeq is DNASTAR's next-gen application for sequence quantification processing, and supports SeqMan NGen assemblies of RNA-Seq, ChIP-Seq, CNV and miRNA data, integrating the analysis of gene expression and SNP interrogation. QSeq is fully integrated with ArrayStar, enabling you to take advantage of its powerful visualization and analytical tools, including using Gene Ontology (GO) annotations for ontology comparisons and gene characterization. To learn more, see the Features or Resources tab below.


"QSeq is a great program for examining RNA-seq data. This program is very helpful for examining gene expression data!"

Nathan Lawson, University of Massachusetts Medical School


Next-Gen Workflows Supported

  • RNA-Seq analysis to measure gene expression for transcriptomes using next-gen and third generation sequencing technologies. Video See it!
  • ChIP-Seq peak detection to discover binding sites of DNA-associated proteins and determine how they interact with the DNA to affect expression in nearby genes.  Video See it!
  • Copy number variation (CNV) reporting and analysis for multiple samples.
  • miRNA discovery and quantification of miRNA sequence data against known miRNA templates

    Analyze Data

  • Easily import GO annotations for ontology comparisons and gene characterization.
  • Filter genes, IP peaks or IP fragments through the advanced filtering options available.
  • Take advantage of analysis tools with graphically rich views. Video See it!

    Export Data and Visualize Genomes

  • Export your data to GenVision for publication-quality coverage graphs.
  • Export your data in WIGGLE format, compatible with genome browsers.
  • Create alignment files such as GFF and BED. 
  • Resources
