July 2017 DNASTAR Newsletter – Making Accuracy Our First Priority
|Upcoming Webinar on Accurate Protein and Antibody Modeling|
On July 12 at 12:00 PM EDT, we are offering a free webinar focusing on accurate protein and antibody modeling.
Join DNASTAR Senior Scientist Dr. Steve Darnell and Vice President Dr. Tom Lynch as they demonstrate our three NovaCloud web applications that are now available for structural and molecular biologists looking for accurate, fast, and easy-to-interpret results.

Accuracy of de novo assembly of Sanger trace data: SeqMan Pro versus three alternative pipelines
We know that when it comes to the software you use for your research, nothing is more important than accuracy. Obtaining reliable results you can trust is non-negotiable. That’s why we devote so much time to testing our software—to make sure you get the right result, every time.
Recently, we put our SeqMan Pro application to the test, by evaluating the results of de novo assemblies and comparing them to three other commercial software applications: Geneious, Sequencher, and CLC Bio. The results?
Of the four products tested, our SeqMan Pro gave the highest accuracy when assembling Sanger ABI trace data. Read More
|SNP Validation Control|
in Lasergene Genomics Suite
Lasergene Genomics Suite offers a validation control workflow which involves running an assembly in SeqMan NGen to verify that you are getting the SNPs that you know are present. This workflow enables you to validate your entire process, including sample preparation, sequencing, and software. Ultimately you will identify sample specific variants and be able to look at the sensitivity, specificity, and balanced accuracy of your project.
|#1 in Accuracy for NGS Alignment|
and Variant Calling
Our results demonstrate that SeqMan NGen has fewer false negatives and better sensitivity compared to each of the other four workflows tested. SeqMan NGen also aligns exome data and performs variant calling an average of 3.5 times faster than the alternative pipelines: BWA+GATK, CLC Bio’s Genomics Workbench, and Geneious. Read More
|LakePharma Protein Engineering Symposium|
Witness the accuracy of our Structural Biology software first hand by joining DNASTAR Vice President Tom Lynch in San Francisco on October 6 for the LakePharma Protein Engineering Symposium.
If you’ll be in the area the week of October 2nd and would like to chat one-on-one, let us know!
