  • Geneious: Any good ?

    Dear all,

    Has any of you tried the Geneious software for Next-Gen sequence assembly or for other applications? Is it worth paying for a software that use 70% of non-commercial sofware in its suite?

    Thank you for your feedback,

    I use it for short read assembly on my desktop which has only 2 Gb ram. Very slow compared to Velvet but nice graphical outputs that I have used in publications and ppt presentations. It is easy to use on Mac and PC for someone like me who has no bioinformatics support to teach me how to assemble and annotate sequences.

        Nice graphics but only the Pro version accepts SAM/GFF/GFF3 format.

        1. No jumping to position in contigs using coordinates
        2. No support for BAM files
        3. Slow to load large SAM files
        4. Cannot view multiple tracks in 1 view

        Better off using a free viewer for NGS like IGV, Tablet, Savant and many more.

        Geneious is great for doing the basic sequence analysis, low throughput kind of work like drawing trees, BLASTing sequences, Clustalw. Not something I would spend money on.

          Geneious

          I use geneious pro for more than low throughput tasks such as alignments, trees etc, although it is good with them too. With Illumina data (78 nt reads) it will quite quicky do denovo assembly of 20 million reads then batch Blast the contigs in groups of 200. With reference assembly it is faster, of course. For someone without Perl/Unix experience, I recommend it. The free version is worth playing with until you can find the $400 for Pro.

            FYI the next version of Geneious i.e 5.4 will support BAM files.

              Ok thank you all for your feedback. It seems that Geneious is more suitable for biologists than for bioinformaticians.

              Thanks

                The Impact of AI in Genomic Medicine
                by seqadmin



                Artificial intelligence (AI) has evolved from a futuristic vision to a mainstream technology, highlighted by the introduction of tools like OpenAI's ChatGPT and Google's Gemini. In recent years, AI has become increasingly integrated into the field of genomics. This integration has enabled new scientific discoveries while simultaneously raising important ethical questions1. Interviews with two researchers at the center of this intersection provide insightful perspectives into...

                Multiomics Techniques Advancing Disease Research
                by seqadmin


                New and advanced multiomics tools and technologies have opened new avenues of research and markedly enhanced various disciplines such as disease research and precision medicine1. The practice of merging diverse data from various ‘omes increasingly provides a more holistic understanding of biological systems. As Maddison Masaeli, Co-Founder and CEO at Deepcell, aptly noted, “You can't explain biology in its complex form with one modality.”
