  • 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

                Exploring the Dynamics of the Tumor Microenvironment
                by seqadmin




                The complexity of cancer is clearly demonstrated in the diverse ecosystem of the tumor microenvironment (TME). The TME is made up of numerous cell types and its development begins with the changes that happen during oncogenesis. “Genomic mutations, copy number changes, epigenetic alterations, and alternative gene expression occur to varying degrees within the affected tumor cells,” explained Andrea O’Hara, Ph.D., Strategic Technical Specialist at Azenta. “As...

                Exploring Human Diversity Through Large-Scale Omics
                by seqadmin


                In 2003, researchers from the Human Genome Project (HGP) announced the most comprehensive genome to date1. Although the genome wasn’t fully completed until nearly 20 years later2, numerous large-scale projects, such as the International HapMap Project and 1000 Genomes Project, continued the HGP's work, capturing extensive variation and genomic diversity within humans. Recently, newer initiatives have significantly increased in scale and expanded beyond genomics, offering a more detailed...
