Sequencing Data Analysis

Biomedical Genomics Workbench lets you import, trim and assemble DNA sequence reads from automated sequencing machines. A number of different formats are supported (see Bioinformatic data formats). This chapter explains the features in Biomedical Genomics Workbench for handling data analysis of low-throughput conventional Sanger sequencing data.

This chapter first explains how to trim sequence reads. Next follows a description of how to assemble reads into contigs both with and without a reference sequence. In the final section, the options for viewing and editing contigs are explained.
