Strand Life Sciences to showcase Strand NGS, analysis software for next-generation sequencing data at ASHG 2017

Scientists from Strand Life Sciences will demonstrate ‘Strand NGS’, an all-in-one next generation sequencing software at the 67th Annual Meeting of the American Society of Human Genetics (ASHG) to be held from Oct 17 to 21 in Orlando, Florida.Strand is excited to be an exhibitor at ASHG 2017 and will use this opportunity to showcase … Continue reading “Strand Life Sciences to showcase Strand NGS, analysis software for next-generation sequencing data at ASHG 2017”

Live webinar on Copy Number Detection in Inherited Disorders and Somatic Cancer

Copy number variants constitute a significant fraction of genomic alterations responsible for cancer and various inherited disorders. In a clinical setting, performing focused NGS testing based on a panel of relevant genes is both economical and provides faster results. Thus the ability to detect CNVs from gene panel based NGS tests increases the diagnostic yield … Continue reading “Live webinar on Copy Number Detection in Inherited Disorders and Somatic Cancer”

Mapping RefSeq transcripts to the genome using UCSC

Transcript annotations are extensively used in NGS data analysis. In RNA-Seq, they are used at every step of the pipeline – to map spliced reads against the genome, perform quantification, detect novel exons etc. In DNA-Seq, they are used to predict the effect of variants detected in the sample. Clearly accurate transcript annotations are vital … Continue reading “Mapping RefSeq transcripts to the genome using UCSC”

Welcome to our blog

Our goal for this blog is to be a distraction that is useful for you as well as for us. We will use this venue to express our bewilderment and discoveries as we traverse the genome. Mostly, we’ll geek out over puzzling challenges in bioinformatics, but we may also delve into other relevant topics – … Continue reading “Welcome to our blog”
