SoftGenetics' NextGene Software
SoftGenetics has added a new batch processing tool for copy number variants to the most recent iteration of its NextGene software. According to the company, the new application helps labs realize the benefits of next-generation sequencing while achieving the sensitivity and specificity of traditional multiplex ligation-dependent probe amplification methodologies. The tool calculates the pileup coverage at each position in targeted panels and normalizes them by a constant value in each sample. It reports the normalized values in tables and in interactive visualizations.
