Sequence assembly software SeqMan NGen 3 has been released by DNAStar. Using patent-pending internally invented algorithms, the software tool assembles a human genome at a normal depth of coverage on a desktop computer in less than a day. Assembling data from all next-generation sequencing technologies, SeqMan NGen is suitable for scientists using third-generation technologies. The product includes a flexible graphical user interface that leads people through experimental set-up for a wide variety of sequence assembly and analysis workflows. SeqMan NGen 3 is being made available with its companion SeqMan Pro analysis software that supports Bayesian SNP identification and facile scanning of genomic data in BAM format on a desktop computer.
