Software by Other Companies

These third-party companies sell data analysis and management software for Applied Biosystems instruments. For more information, click the names of the software below.
Application Software (Company) Software Description
DNA Methylation Analysis, Bisulfite Sequencing CpGviewer
(University of Leeds, UK)
Sequencing of cloned bisulphite-modified DNA is a widely-used method for analysis of genomic methylation. Although straightforward in principle, in practice the data manipulation can be involved and time consuming.

CpGviewer is a free computer program that aims to be a simple integrated tool for handling bisulphite sequencing projects. It can process plain text sequences or electropherogram trace files (.ab1 files from Sequencing Analysis Software) from Applied Biosystems Genetic Analyzer instruments and allows interactive editing of the sequences, aligned to a reference sequence. It provides methylation specific data analysis and visualization. It also offers the facility to generate figures for publication and to design primers for bisulphite-treated templates.

  • Supports both raw or base called data
  • Generates a bisulfite converted reference sequence from a non-converted input and identifies CpG's
  • Batches a large number of files, and assembles the data
  • Methylation specific visualization
Intended Users: Anyone who works with DNA methylation data from bisulfite sequencing; occasional users as well as experts
DNA Methylation Analysis, Bisulfite Sequencing BiQ Analyzer
(Max Planck Institute for Computer Science)
BiQ Analyzer is a free software tool for easy visualization and quality control of DNA methylation data from bisulfite sequencing.

  • End-to-end support of the analysis process: from raw sequence files to comprehensive documentation and visualization
  • Automatical generation of publication-quality 'lollipop diagrams'
  • Integrated 1-click multiple sequence alignment
  • Automated CpG highlighting
  • Factor 5 speedup over manual analysis, plus systematic quality control
Intended Users: Anyone who works with DNA methylation data from bisulfite sequencing; occasional users as well as experts (beginners will benefit from help with quality control whereas experts will save hours and days of tedious work by using BiQ Analyzer).

Web-based Diagram Generation: Diagram generation is also available as a web service for users who analyze their DNA methylation data outside BiQ Analyzer but want to generate high-quality 'lollipop diagrams' directly.
DNA Sequencing, Fragment Analysis, Genotyping, Data Management, LIMS Finch® Suite Software
Commercial Off-the-shelf software for genetic testing for contract core labs, life science research labs, molecular diagnostic labs and bio-therapeutic manufacturing labs to manage and automate the production and analysis of genetic data.

The Genetic Analysis Integration Tool links the Finch Suite LIMS with the Applied Biosystems GeneMapper® Software v4.0 and SeqScape® v2.5 software applications.
Genotyping Exempler for Genotyping
