SoftGenetics' NextGene Software
Jan 21, 2015
SoftGenetics has released a new version of its NextGene software, which is used for analyzing data from Illumina and Ion Torrent sequencers.
This release includes a new somatic mutation comparison tool, which reduces false positives when performing somatic mutation analysis by up to 70 percent; an HLA analysis module that matches sample reads to a dictionary reference file with allele-specific sequences for targeted HLA genes; and it also includes enhancements to the copy number variation analysis module. Other updates include a new user management module and a new clinical relevance filter.
