Background and objective
To facilitate routine analysis and to improve the reproducibility of the results, next-generation sequencing (NGS) analysis requires intuitive, efficient and integrated data processing pipelines.
We have selected well-established software to construct a suite of automated and parallelized workflows to analyse NGS data for DNA-seq (single-nucleotide variants (SNVs) and indels), CNA-seq, bisulfite-seq and ChIP-seq experiments.
Here, we present RUbioSeq+, an updated and extended version of RUbioSeq, a multiplatform application that incorporates a suite of automated and parallelized workflows to analyse NGS data. This new version includes: (i) an interactive graphical user interface (GUI) that facilitates its use by both biomedical researchers and bioinformaticians, (ii) a new pipeline for ChIP-seq experiments, (iii) pair-wise comparisons (case–control analyses) for DNA-seq experiments, (iv) and improvements in the parallelized and multithreaded execution options. Results generated by our software have been experimentally validated and accepted for publication.
RUbioSeq has been developed to facilitate the primary and secondary analysis of re-sequencing projects by providing an integrated software suite of parallelized pipelines to detect exome variants (single-nucleotide variants and copy number variations) and to perform bisulfite-seq analyses automatically. RUbioSeq’s variant analysis results have been already validated and published.
