Strand NGS-Annotation toolbox for organisms

Our planet accommodates a variety of life with their genes: from civilized humans to the colonized bacteria, from infamous mosquito to the cutest puppies, and from golden rice to the greenest algae. Studying these species helps us in understanding the genetics of the species and population diversity and also other biomedical and bio technical applications. … Continue reading “Strand NGS-Annotation toolbox for organisms”

What’s new in Strand NGS 3.4

Data quality is of utmost importance for accurate and valid downstream NGS analysis. Sequence artifacts contribute to erroneous interpretations in analysis. Focusing on this, we have introduced two quality checks to find Overrepresented Sequences and Adapter Content. Trim these sequence artifacts in further steps for accurate downstream analysis Strand NGS 3.4 now supports Agilent UMI … Continue reading “What’s new in Strand NGS 3.4”

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 v2.7 released

We are excited to share the release of Strand NGS v2.7. This new version comes with several exciting features and enhancements. Listed below are few major enhancements:

Review of selected publications citing Strand NGS

In 2015, we brought in many new features and improvements based on your requirements and feedback. We expanded the Strand NGS epigenomics toolkit by adding the MeDIP-Seq workflow in the v2.5 release. We also added new features like the alignment workflow and SV detection for split reads (watch the webinar), a browser-based copy number variation (CNV) view … Continue reading “Review of selected publications citing Strand NGS”
