SoftGenetics has released version 2.3.2 of its NextGene sequencing analysis software. The release includes applications for copy number variant analysis, HLA analysis, as well as a somatic mutation mining tool that can be used with all available sequencing platforms.
BGI Tech has launched Ultra-Deep De Novo, an assembly algorithm that adopts the firm's SOAPdenovo2 assembly software and heterozygous sequence processing algorithm. The tool classifies heterozygous regions within the genome, following ultra-deep sequencing greater than 200-fold coverage.
CLC Bio has launched CLC Microbial Genome Finishing Module, an add-on module to CLC Genomics Workbench. The module includes tools to align and analyze contigs, collect paired reads statistics, create amplicons and primers, add reads to contigs, sample reads and find sequence, reassemble regions, and extend contigs.
