Click to ViewGenome Stations/ Workstation is a performance optimized large-scale genomics data analysis devise. This power-packed multi-processor server is sufficient to handle moderate data load of transcriptome sequence and genome sequences of prokaryotes and plants with smaller genome sizes. The instrument is backed-up with all required softwares for quality checking and analyzing of the raw NGS reads to assemble contigs and annotation of the assembled contigs. A complete pipeline of softwares are installed for NGS analysis, molecular marker development and NCBI-Blast analysis. With the power of command line scripts, it is possible to easily resolve the difficulties of large-scale data handling, analysis and interpretation of results to address any biological questions at the molecular level.

  Working Principles
Click to ViewAll the analysis in genome station runs by the machine learning process using standard or customized linux and perl scripts. All the softwares used in the analytical process are available at the public domain under the GNU General Public License

  User Instructions
Any Next-generation sequence analysis, RNA-seq/Transcriptome assembly (both de novo and genome-guided), Small-scale genome sequence assembly (Prokaryotes), Meta-genomics sequence assembly and annotations, Molecular markers (SSR and SNP) discovery etc.All users should possess a basic knowledge of linux/unix commands and technical know-how of the softwares to be run for the desired purpose. Alternatively, may take the help of the expert(s) available at the Centre. Users must comply with the limitations of the machine to handle extremely large data size, which may lead to system/memory crash. All users must sign the logbook for using the machine.
