Synamatix has announced the release of SynaMer™, a bioinformatics application designed to complete ultra-fast processing of sequence reads for large scale genome assembly. The application was developed in collaboration with an unnamed genome research institute in the USA.

According to the Company, the sequencing and assembly of genomes is a core research objective for genome research centres. Having the capability to find longer over-lapping k-mers can improve the quality of the final assembly as highly-repetitive branch points can be spanned.

In a recent project, SynaMer was used to process 23 billion bp of sequence data from the Macaque genome. The results were obtained in 3.5 hours, producing as output, all overlapping k-mers from the assembly reads, which, in this case, was the identification of all overlapping 96-mers.

Robert Hercus, Synamatix Managing Director commented, "We are very pleased with the results and see this as the first of several major technical advances that we will be announcing for the enhancement and acceleration of genome assembly and genome re-sequencing."
