Bionano Genomics Genomic Analysis Tools Suite

Bionano Genomics has launched a new suite of genomic analysis software, Bionano Access 1.0 and Bionano Solve 3.0. Bionano Access replaces IrysView software for Irys users and centralizes all software needed to generate, edit, analyze, and visualize genome maps. It also comes with a powerful variant annotation pipeline that can filter out common variants based on a database of controls, analyze trios or two samples to identify inherited and de novo structural variants, and visualize and export in a dbVar-compliant VCF file for downstream analysis. Bionano Solve 3.0 is an assembly pipeline within Bionano Access that allows users to run SV analysis or hybrid scaffolding. It also significantly improves the hybrid scaffolding application by integrating two genome maps created separately with different nicking enzymes.
