SeqMan NGen and SeqMan Pro Now Available in Illumina’s BaseSpace Apps

New Apps make sequence assembly and analysis workflows available to Company’s customers quickly.

DNASTAR® has announced that it has added the SeqMan NGen and SeqMan Pro applications to Illumina’s BaseSpace Apps, Illumina’s dedicated applications store and informatics community dedicated to advancing genomic analysis.

Illumina BaseSpace users are now able to license DNASTAR’s software for one, two, or three days to perform de novo or reference-guided sequence assembly and analysis of a multitude of data sets.

SeqMan NGen supports reference-guided human exome alignment and SNP calling as well as templated or de novo bacterial genome assembly and many other assembly and alignment workflows through its flexible interface and algorithms.

SeqMan Pro enables strong visualization, analysis, and filtering of data for one or multiple projects using sequence data from Illumina’s BaseSpace environment.

Tom Schwei, Vice President and General Manager of DNASTAR, commented, “One year ago, we were pleased to participate in Illumina’s BaseSpace beta launch. Since then, we’ve seen a large number of scientists try our initial BaseSpace App, which supported de novo bacterial genome assembly. In May 2013, we introduced the DNASTAR Cloud, supplementing our traditional desktop computer software by making all DNASTAR software available on the Amazon cloud. A natural next step was to broaden our offering on Illumina’s BaseSpace to support a much wider range of workflows used by Illumina customers every day. Our new SeqMan NGen and SeqMan Pro BaseSpace Apps make all of our sequence assembly and analysis workflows available to Illumina customers quickly and efficiently. We are excited to continue our relationship with Illumina and their customers and we look forward to fast adoption of our new software offering. Our mission throughout our company history has been to provide the tools required by life scientists where and when they need them. By substantially broadening our software offering on BaseSpace, we are further advancing that mission today.”

Informatics solutions available through BaseSpace Apps allow customers to utilize the tools from a growing community of academic, commercial, and open source providers.
