Use Lasergene Genomics’ powerful algorithms to align metagenomic sequence data to a diverse reference data set or cluster novel sequences for identification.
Effectively assembling and analyzing metagenomic sequencing data can be challenging, considering the volume of data involved, as well as the many time-consuming steps often required to identify variants, calculate coverage, and remove host DNA. Lasergene Genomics simplifies the process by providing a wizard to walk you through the metagenomic assembly and host removal process from start to finish. Our microbiome analysis software makes it easy to align metagenomic sequencing data to thousands of whole annotated bacterial genomes from NCBI, or to a 16s rRNA database. The powerful algorithms within SeqMan NGen perform metagenomic assemblies with unprecedented speed, getting you from raw data to the analysis stage quicker. SeqMan NGen also offers the ability to perform a metagenomic assembly of novel sequences de novo, or assemble de novo highly variable sequences from HLA, antibody regions, viral populations, or mitochondrial populations. Variant detection and coverage calculations are done automatically for you during the metagenomic assembly process, so that following the assembly, you are ready to analyze contigs, and easily identify which bacterial strains are most abundant in the microbiome.
