San Diego-based Accelrys is collaborating with Oxford Nanopore Technologies. The joint venture will create software for complicated analyses of information derived by Oxford Nanopore single molecule analysis system.
Analysis for Pipeline Pilot at middle and higher levels for the Oxford Nanopore DNA sequencing system will be delivered for commercial release. The pipelines will utilize collections such as the NGS Collection for Pipeline Pilot, a software compliant with most DNA sequencing technologies.
Clive G. Brown, chief technology officer of Oxford Nanopore says the software platform will help address multiple research issues. Molecular analysis such as DNA sequencing is an import component of life science research, but information management is difficult. Evolving algorithms make NGS analysis a challenge. The software is designed to deliver nanopore-centric workflow characteristics including real-time easy-to-access test analysis for applications ranging from uni-to-multiple installations.
The Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) Collection for Pipeline Pilot has numerous algorithmic, data control and visualisation units. These will enable the assembly of efficient information processing pipelines having a simple drag-and-drop approach that is user friendly for visual programming. The pipelines speed up analysis workflows, delivering methods for de novo assembly, routing data to reference points, detecting polymorphisms and structural variants, determining RNA levels, and tracking movement factor binding spots. Users will be able to introduce new protocols, making it easy to access analyses via either a network or local computer.
