NGS data analysis service

Research projects involving next-generation sequencing require careful planning, sound computational methodology, and concise reporting. Our NGS data analysis service is designed to ensure each phase is concucted up to high scientific standards.

We help companies and university research groups in turning ideas into concrete project plans and measurement strategies. We can also help in finding the best NGS service provider to match your needs.

The main focus in our NGS data analysis service is on the computational analysis of genome-wide data, with emphasis on tailored downstream analysis, interpretation and result visualization.

Few typical analyses are outlined under genomics, transcriptomics, epigenomics, and other data sections. Also, take a look at the common workflow in the panel on right to learn more about our NGS data analysis service.

We think research services should be personal – you will be in direct contact with the bioinformaticians working in your project.

NGS data analysis service

Read more about our NGS data analysis service:

  • 1) Initial meeting
    • Our NGS data analysis service starts with an initial meeting to discuss your research and needs. The aim is to suggest a bioinformatics project plan that may or may not include acquiring sequencing measurements, depending on whether the data is already available or not. We strive to find a tailored solution that provides the best value for you.

      Why?

      • To get to know your new collaborators
      • To find out how we can help you
      • To give you a bioinformaticians' perspective on your project
  • 2) Project plan
    • After determining the project goals in the initial meeting, we draft a step-by-step plan of the required measurements and analyses to reach the the set goals. We send you the project plan along with a quote for the NGS data analysis service, including the schedule and costs, to initiate discussions on starting the project. The project plan can be then revised such that it includes the best possible solution for your project.

      Why?

      • To refine abstract ideas into a concrete project
      • To eliminate misunderstandings and aligning our expectations
      • To enable estimation of time and cost for the project
  • 3) Measurement plan
    • If next-generation sequencing measurements are needed in the project, measurement planning will be included in the NGS data analysis service. This usually consist of both experiment design and cost analysis (detailed in the consulting section). The planned measurements may be acquired by you using our plan, or by us if that is more convenient. Utilizing our experience in acquiring NGS measurements, we search our global network of sequencing service providers for the ones providing the best combination of expertise, speed, and price.

      Why?

      • To find the most cost-efficient service provider for you
      • To prevent disasters from poor planning
      • To make it easier for you to acquire data
  • 4) Next-generation sequencing
    • The samples are shipped to the selected sequencing provider for sequencing. If the measurements were acquired from us, we will take care of all communication, logistics and paperwork with the provider.

      Turn-around time:

      • Around 10 weeks for most projects, depending on:
        • Chosen provider
        • Sequencing type
        • Amount of samples
        • Sample material
  • 5) Quality control
    • The computational part of an NGS data analysis project begins with running a comprehensive panel of technical quality control analyses to ensure the integrity or your data. In addition to technical quality, we will also ascertain the biological successfulness of the experiments to make sure all samples and replicates can be used in the statistical analysis.

      Why?

      • To identify unsuccessful biology experiments
      • To identify poor sequencing experiments
      • To enable statistical analysis with the best possible output
  • 6) Analysis
    • To transform your raw data into results that you can directly use in a publication or an internal report, we will design and implement a custom analysis pipeline. To get an idea of some types of data and analyses involved in the NGS data analysis service, please take a look at the examples listed in genomics, transcriptomics, epigenomics, and other data.

      Turn-around time:

      • Depends greatly on the level of customization needed
      • Around 2 months for a typical project
      • Projects with little customization are completed in less than 4 weeks
  • 7) Results review
    • To make sure that you got everything you wanted and more, we sit down with you to carefully explain what we did and what do the results mean. In case you needed something more, in a different format, or done in another way, any part of the analysis may be re-worked after the discussion.

      Why?

      • To make sure you understand every result
      • To check that everything was done according to your expectations
      • To enable final modifications before ending the project
  • 8) Project report
    • Reporting and discussing the outcome with you is the last and perhaps most crucial step in our NGS data analysis service. We present the results to you and send a project report with detailed methods descriptions and results in tables, figures, and files, including the raw and intermediary data in any format you need. In addition, we will answer your questions on the results as long after the project as you want.

      Why?

      • To document the project in detail
      • To enable sharing the details to all stakeholders
      • To make it easier for you to publish the results
