SeqMan NGen is a High Accuracy NGS Assembler:  Assessment with NA12878 Reference Materials


Clinical Research

DNASTAR's Lasergene Genomics Suite includes a full-spectrum of functionality for clinical research. Features of the Lasergene Genomics Suite software include:

  • Streamlined workflows for Mendelian and Cancer Gene Panels
  • Powerful analysis and filtering capabilities for both prospective and retrospective studies
  • Industry leading accuracy of greater than 99.8%
  • Quick assembly of large data sets from all major next-gen technologies on a desktop computer - check out our benchmarks below
  • Ability to identify mutations using live, interactive views and comprehensive filtering tools
  • Direct connection to the dbNSFP, dbSNP, COSMIC and GERP databases
  • The ability to perform large-scale comparisons of SNPs across individuals and groups of individuals, and determine the level of disruption to each gene caused by the SNPs present
  • Streamlined Workflow for Gene Panels

    Quickly narrow your focus to identify variants of interest with a streamlined approach to gene panel data assembly and analysis.

    Discovery of Disease-Causing Gene Mutations

    For more information on using Lasergene Genomics Suite in association studies, please see the following video, which briefly demonstrates the alignment of exome data from 10 individuals with Kabuki syndrome and 8 control individuals against the entire human genome, as well as post-assembly analysis of SNPs. For more details on this project, please see the poster below.
