Variant Analysis Software

Variant Analysis Software

Lasergene Genomics Suite

Lasergene Genomics Suite's variant analysis software provides tools to simplify the discovery and analysis of variants in multiplexed data generated by all major next-gen sequencing platforms including Illumina, Ion Torrent, and Pacific Biosciences. Our variant analysis software enables you to:

  • Quickly and easily assemble large data sets from all major next-gen technologies on a desktop computer—check out our benchmarks below
  • Perform variant analysis for a variety of project types, including whole genome sequencing, exome and targeted sequencing, gene panels, and RNA-Seq
  • Utilize DNASTAR's new human variant annotation database, which bundles together data from dbNSFP as well as 1000 Genomes and ESP's Exome Variant Server
  • Analyze variants using live, interactive views and comprehensive filtering tools
  • Perform large-scale comparisons of variants across individuals and groups of indivduals, and determine the level of disruption to each gene caused by the variants present
  • Send genes or variants of interest to SeqMan Pro to view the read alignment at that position, or send to GenVision Pro to view the assembly coverage for all sample simultaneously
