The increased efficiency and reduced per-read cost of next generation sequencing (NGS) devices has opened new and exciting opportunities for data analysis. Rather than using a small number of samples, sometimes without replicates, researchers can now effectively compare expression profiles of a large number of samples, complete with replicates.

TOKYO, Japan – February 19, 2013 – Japan Bioinformatics, today announced the release of their Simbiot® Time Course Analysis ‘How-To’ Guide.

The increased efficiency and reduced per-read cost of next generation sequencing (NGS) devices has opened new and exciting opportunities for data analysis. Rather than using a small number of samples, sometimes without replicates, researchers can now effectively compare expression profiles of a large number of samples, complete with replicates.

While many effective and easy-to-use algorithms for gene expression analysis have been developed for handling microarray data, the process is not trivial and requires significant bioinformatics and IT expertise. The Simbiot® Time Course Analysis ‘How-To’ provides a step-by-step guide for handling data management and processing tools that can effectively transform the NGS data into a format that can be analyzed using more sophisticated algorithms.

The Simbiot® Time Course Analysis ‘How-To’ Guide uses a set of 12 NGS samples derived from the first 24 hours of Drosophila embryonic development to demonstrate an expression analysis method with peer-reviewed statistical algorithms. This approach offers a standardized analysis pipeline for expression data generated by high-speed sequencing technologies.
