Rare diseases: or, what happens when backups fail

Ploidy is a funny old Greek word for a modern, almost modish concept: data backups. Ploidy is the number of copies of an organism’s DNA. Certain kinds of algae, for instance, don’t buy into backups; they’re haploid, and contain only a single copy of DNA. Plants, on the other hand, are polyploidal; paranoiacs of the … Continue reading “Rare diseases: or, what happens when backups fail”

Webinar on DNA-Seq data analysis- Case studies

DNA-Seq data can be analyzed and visualized using an extensive workflow in Strand NGS software. The software has been designed for the biologists. Strand NGS supports analysis of whole exome, whole genome and targeted sequencing experiments. The DNA-Seq workflow includes the ability to detect variants (SNPs, MNPs and short InDels), annotate them with dbSNP, and … Continue reading “Webinar on DNA-Seq data analysis- Case studies”
