Reference-Guided Genome Assembly

DNASTAR's Lasergene Genomics Suite software assembles data from all major next-gen sequencing platforms against a reference sequence with unsurpassed ease and speed. Features of the Lasergene Genomics Suite software include:

  • Quick and accurate assembly of human or other large eukaryotic genomes against a genomic template on a desktop computer - check out our benchmarks below.
  • The ability to assemble virtually any next-gen sequencing platform, including Roche 454, Illumina, Ion Torrent, Pacific Biosciences, ABI SOLiD, Helicos, or Sanger data
  • An interactive, data-rich SNP report, including probabilities and genotypes determined with Bayesian statistics as well as dbSNP/COSMIC/GERP associations
  • The option to generate output of the finished assembly in BAM format
  • For more information on using Lasergene Genomics Suite for your reference-guided assembly projects, this brief video gives an overview of the workflow:
