Assemble to Reference

The Reference sequence is a powerful feature, core to many aspects of sequencing and sequence analysis. Whether you are SNP hunting, engaged in Forensics, phylogenetic studies, medical genetics or population studies you will want to use the Reference Sequence feature.

Import a sequence in GenBank format and its feature table will be applied to the sequence, and mark it as a Reference Sequence. Assembling to the Reference Sequence means you are able to compare your reads to the archetypal Reference Sequence. If you are working with multiple samples from different sources you can even use Assemble by Name to automate your work.

You can even use the Reference Sequence to guide the removal of sequences outside your region of interest or fill gaps in the sequence coverage.

Visualize the results using the Variance Table and its powerful reports.
