CLC Genomics Workbench as a Tool Next Generation Sequencing Data
Contributed by Nguyet Kong
CLC Genomics Workbench was designed to assist with many different Next Generation Sequencing bioinformatics applications from RNAseq, Transcriptomics, Metagenomics, Epigenomics and de novo assembly. The CLC Genomics Workbench is a user-friendly software that is easily used by scientist in the laboratory. The software allows to set up custom genomics workflow to fast-track data analysis with just one button. Since the workflow can be custom, it can also be shared with other groups. For example, the workflows can include control steps, adapter trimming, read mapping, variant detection, multiple filtering and annotation steps into the pipeline. The workflows can be run in batches, so it allows to process a large number of samples. In addition to different Next Generation Sequencing applications, CLC Genomics workbench is a phylogenetic tool and it allows BLAST searches, design PCR primers, and many other molecular biology developments.
