It was a pleasure attending PAG 2016. We had a poster presentation and were hosting a workshop on advanced NGS data analysis where invited guest speakers presented their research and agrigenomics software solutions from QIAGEN Bioinformatics.
CLC Microbiome Genomics Module: Interactive Metagenome Analysis Tools
Now researchers are able to examine sample from a variety of resources such as soil, river water and gut microbiome. There are several analysis tools however those tools are not easy to use for everyone. Therefore interactive and intuitive tool can overcome the difficulties. We created CLC Microbial Genomics Module (MGM) that is metagenomics analysis module for CLC Genomics Workbench.

Advanced NGS data analysis – integrated and user friendly bioinformatics toolbox for the analysis and visualization of multi-omics data
Analysis of next generation sequencing data typically requires the use of a range of different open source algorithms and bioinformatics software applications. Particularly making maximum sense of several different datatypes, such as genomic and variant data, transcriptomic and epigenomic data, can be challenging.
In our workshop we had two presentations:
- We presented an update on CLC Genomics Workbench, our user friendly multi-omics analysis platform. During this presentation we highlighted new epigenomics features including bisulfite sequencing and differential methylation analysis, updated ChiP-Seq capabilities now offering broad peak support, and transcription factor binding site prediction.
Speaker: Igor Kardailsky, QIAGEN Bioinformatics
- High performance functional annotation via Blast2GO. CLC Genomics Workbench is leading in terms of comprehensive and intuitive NGS data analysis, designed for integration of third party algorithms. One example is the well-known Blast2GO PRO plugin. BioBam’s Stefan Goetz presented an overview of the Blast2GO methodology and how it is applied to a high diversity of organisms. This included an introduction of the analysis procedure itself and how the functional information is used further downstream to generate meaningful results.
