  • General LIMS versus NGS only LIMS

    Hi,
    I'd like to get your perspective on the value of getting a NGS specific LIMS rather than a general one that you can configure according to your needs.
    There are a handful of companies (I can think of three at least) that specialize on NGS but what about general systems?
    Is it the expertise or integration they can potentially provide and can't general LIMS provide the same level of integration and configuration?
    I need some help understanding the benefits of one versus the other...
    thanks for your time.

    Hi magcha,

    would you mind saying which are the NGS-specific companies you have in mind? We're looking at the same thing right now and I'm curious if there are obvious cases that we've missed.

    We're looking for an NGS-specific one mostly because that's all that we need. Our current solution is a patched-up website form that makes it a bit too easy to enter incorrect information. The NGS-specific have the advantage of having a couple of neat bells and whistles (monitoring run folders & populating fields from it), they're pre-organized for sequencing workflows and I think they tend to be cheaper as well.

      The NGS-specific LIMS we are considering is miniLIMS from BioTeam. If anyone has experience with this system or any other NGS-specific LIMS we'd sure appreciate their experience. How long did it take to set up. How has it helped? What is it missing? etc.

        I'd recommend buying in a commercial and configured solution. We have built our own LIMs for NGS but started at a time when there were no commercial offerings.

        Our Sanger sequencing is run on a commercial platform and we just use it. No configuration and little pain. We use Geospiza in this instance.

        Interestingly someone at AGBT mentioned the Galaxy LIMs and I am trying to find out more about that. I like the cloud based solution with no hardware to configure or look after once the install is done.

          Essential Discoveries and Tools in Epitranscriptomics
          by seqadmin




          The field of epigenetics has traditionally concentrated more on DNA and how changes like methylation and phosphorylation of histones impact gene expression and regulation. However, our increased understanding of RNA modifications and their importance in cellular processes has led to a rise in epitranscriptomics research. “Epitranscriptomics brings together the concepts of epigenetics and gene expression,” explained Adrien Leger, PhD, Principal Research Scientist...

          Current Approaches to Protein Sequencing
          by seqadmin


          Proteins are often described as the workhorses of the cell, and identifying their sequences is key to understanding their role in biological processes and disease. Currently, the most common technique used to determine protein sequences is mass spectrometry. While still a valuable tool, mass spectrometry faces several limitations and requires a highly experienced scientist familiar with the equipment to operate it. Additionally, other proteomic methods, like affinity assays, are constrained...
