Applied Biosystems® Analysis Module Variant Analysis (VA) is Sanger sequencing software hosted on the Thermo Fisher Cloud environment. VA can be accessed for free through the Apps Page. 1000 AB sequencing files can be analyzed and results displayed in 1 minute, while 10,000 AB sequencing files can be analyzed in less than 5 minutes, a rate that cannot be matched by traditional desktop software.

Variant Analysis software is designed for reference-based re-sequencing analyses such as SNP detection and analysis, SNP discovery and validation, and sequence confirmation, all on the cloud. The software can automatically retrieve reference sequence from genomic databases, report variants in genomic coordinates, and report genomic annotations for SNPs. The software also generates and can export variants in the standard variant call format (vcf). With highly overlapped forward/reverse strands, Variant Analysis software reports higher sensitivity for SNPs than Variant Reporter.

Note: Detection of heterozygous deletions and insertions will be supported in a future software release.

Key software features:
• Simplified workflow that requires less than a half hour to learn
• No operating system limitation (including iOS). Software accessed through a web browser.
• No software maintenance needed from user
• Projects can be shared among registered users for collaboration
• Genomic coordinates reported for each variant and genomic annotations automatically retrieved
• Easy navigation to regions of interest in electropherograms
• Simple quality checking by color-coded trace summary and quick look-ups of markers (low QV, user-edited bases, mixed bases, etc.)
• Automatic alignment of multiple analyzed plots, forward or reverse complementary
• Variants exported in standard vcf format
• Increased analysis capacity with the power of the cloud
