Gene Codes is committed to bringing you a wide variety of alignment and assembly algorithms developed and published in peer-reviewed journals, but making them accessible to non-engineers. For example, GSNAP (Tom Wu, Genentech, Inc.) is recognized as one of the best algorithms for correctly identifying splice junctions. A bioinformatics specialist might invoke the program like this:
Most of us work more efficiently if we have some tools to help us understand what all of the available flags and parameters are and how they affect the program. The Sequencher interface helps you select options, set values, and learn the available functionality with descriptions and tool tips. The same options from the command line above are set this way in Sequencher:
View your results in Maqview or Tablet.
BWA, Velvet, Maq, GSNAP and Tablet are only the start for Sequencher. In months to come, you will see Sequencher add more algorithms and tools, developed and peer-reviewed in the scientific community.
