Downloads and Upgrades: SeqMan NGen and Pro, SZYBKI 1.8, and Syapse for Labs


DNAStar has added SeqMan NGen and SeqMan Pro applications to BaseSpace Apps, Illumina's store for cloud-based bioinformatics applications.

The addition means that BaseSpace users can now license DNAStar's software for one, two, or three days and use its workflows to run de novo or reference-guided sequence assemblies. The apps also provide visualization, analysis, and filtering capabilities.

OpenEye Scientific Software has released SZYBKI 1.8. This version features several fixes, a new utility program called FreeForm, a new forcefield for protein-ligand interactions, as well as improvements to entropy calculations and the optimization process.

Syapse has released a new clinical omics reporting application called Syapse for Labs that provides diagnostic laboratories with tools for generating molecular profiling test reports.

The software lets users manage patients' clinical information, omics data, and supporting laboratory data and it stores biomedical evidence, such as variant interpretation, in a versioned knowledge base. Also, patient test reports are automatically assembled by a configurable rules engine, which updates reports as the evidence in the knowledge base evolves.
