Performing large scale NGS alignments or de novo sequence assemblies on your laptop or desktop computer can often be a problem due to insufficient hard disk space or memory. Sometimes more computing power is needed to complete assemblies successfully.
That’s why we offer DNASTAR Cloud Assemblies, so that you can easily utilize our cloud computing resources to align and assemble your NGS data, and free up your local computer to do other things.
When you set up your NGS project, SeqMan NGen automatically analyzes your input data and hardware and lets you know if your system can handle the assembly locally, or if you should run it on the cloud.
To run assemblies on the cloud, you need to log into your account from within SeqMan NGen by clicking the key in the bottom left corner. (See Fig. 1). Your username is the email address you used to purchase or download a free trial. If you’ve forgotten your password, you can reset it from the login page.
Every free trial and purchase of Lasergene Genomics includes 5 free DNASTAR Cloud Assemblies.
