CLC Bio has released CLC Genomics Workbench 2.0. New features include an “extremely fast” algorithm for the assembly of short reads; lower memory requirements that allow users to perform reference assembly against all human chromosomes on a standard computer; masking of genomic regions such as repeat or coding regions to lower the genomic complexity and facilitate the fast mapping of CHiP-seq data or exon captured data; and the ability to combine data across platforms and experimental protocols, such as single-read and paired-end data.
