Standard Services:

  • Genome and Transcriptome SNP and Small Indel Discovery: Alignment of short sequence read data to a genome and transcriptome reference to predict single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and indels.
  • RNA-Seq Expression Analysis: Alignment of RNA sequencing reads to a genome or transcriptome reference, read-count based expression and differential expression reports.
  • De novo Transcript Assembly and Annotation: De Bruijn graph based transcriptome assembly with annotation of predicted peptides using protein motif databases.
