Webinar on fast and accurate variant calling

Continuing our DNA-Seq webinar series, we’ll present Strand NGS v3.0 best-practices: a workflow that identifies highly accurate variants from raw reads. Our best practices workflow is twice as fast as its GATK counterpart, and results in precision/recall rates of up to 99%/98% on whole exome and whole genome samples. We’ll also speak briefly about some … Continue reading “Webinar on fast and accurate variant calling”

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”

Strand NGS also supports novel discovery like identification of novel genes, exons and Novel splice junctions, alongside it can also detect gene fusion events. … Continue reading “Webinar on RNA-Seq Data Analysis”

Webinar on Implications of Next Generation Sequencing in Molecular Diagnosis of Cancer

Genetic testing requires screening of the entire gene, which by conventional sequencing is time consuming and expensive. Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) based approaches increase the sensitivity of mutation detection, making it fast and cost-effective compared to the conventional tests performed in a reflex-testing mode. Strand NGS includes workflows with quality assessment and filter sections that … Continue reading “Webinar on Implications of Next Generation Sequencing in Molecular Diagnosis of Cancer”

Celebrating 25th Release announcement of Strand NGS

We are happy to share the announcement of the 25th release of Strand NGS (v2.8). We started our journey as bioinformatics experts in 2000, and moved into the next-generation sequencing space with the launch of Strand NGS (formerly Avadis NGS) in October 2010. Since then we have grown with our customers, added more workflows, features, … Continue reading “Celebrating 25th Release announcement of Strand NGS”
