DNASTAR's Lasergene Genomics Suite includes de novo sequence assembly software that allows you to quickly and easily perform de novo assemblies using either long or short reads from all major next-gen sequencing platforms. Features of the Lasergene Genomics Suite software include:
- Quick and accurate de novo assembly on a desktop computer
- Assembly of either single-end or paired-end data
- The ability to view contig scaffolds along with the paired sequences that tie the contigs together
- Annotation of gaps in the scaffold consensus

|K-12 E. coli Genome (merge pair data) Data provided by Ion Torrent.
Merged pair data consists of overlapping forward and reverse reads.
SeqMan NGen aligns these reads and merges them into a single consensus.
