Seven Bridges Graf Genome Analysis

Bioinformatics firm Seven Bridges has made its graph-based genome analysis methods for population genomics available. The offering replaces the previous Graph Genome Suite.

Moreover, the company is offering its Graf Germline Variant Detection workflow and Pan Genome Reference to academic researchers for free.

Graf tools offer the ability to create population-specific genome graphs, curated genome graphs for rare disease, bespoke and family genome graphs for de novo mutation detection, and cancer and normal sample genome graphs for detecting somatic mutations in tumors.  

The tools improve genome analysis for people with non-European heritage, support more diverse population studies, and provide more accurate insertion and deletion calls.
