How does it work?
Once you submit your genomic services inquiry, our dedicated genomics team will reach out to you to discuss your project and any requirements you have. From there, we will provide a proposal based on your specific needs and goals. As the service project begins, we will check in with you regularly on the status of your project and provide results along the way. We believe in transparency and want you to be 100% satisfied with the work we provide.
How long do genomic services projects typically take?
It depends on the nature and complexity of your project, but often a genome assembly and annotation project can be completed in just a few weeks.
Can I use genomic services in conjunction with DNASTAR software?
Yes! Once the services project is complete, you may wish to further analyze your completed genome, share results with colleagues, or export images for publication using our Lasergene software. All genomic services projects come with access to Lasergene for these purposes. We can even provide training to you and your team to perform downstream analysis.
What types of genomic data analysis do you offer?
We can do variant analysis and RNA-Seq analysis for any genome, as long as there is an available template sequence. For de novo genome assembly and annotation, our services are best suited to microbial genomes or genomes up to 100 Mb in length.
What is included in services for genome assembly and closure?
Our in-house experts will do everything from assembling raw sequencing data, to polishing the genome, closing gaps, and annotating the genome sequence. We will provide you with GenBank and SeqMan Ultra files with the completed genome, along with custom genomic data analysis reports.
What tools does DNASTAR use for genome annotation?
We use a combination of tools in Lasergene, along with a variety of taxonomic analysis tools, open-source software, and in-house specialized databases to get you the best annotation results. With over 70 years of combined experience in genome annotation, our team’s expertise allows us to identify use the best tools for the job, giving you the most comprehensive annotation results.
Can DNASTAR sequence my genome for me?
While we typically focus on genome annotation and genomic data analysis for users that have completed their sequencing already, we can provide sequencing services through our partners. Please fill out the genomic services interest form for more information.
