Genome Detective

Genome Detective offers Bio-Informatics services for the analysis of microbial molecular sequence data.

We have finalized our first major tool, Genome Detective Virus Tool: An Accurate, Fast and Automated System for Virus Identification from High-throughput next generation sequencing (NGS) data. Genome Detective Virus Tool accurately and quickly identifies, assembles and classifies all known viruses present in short read, long read, and Sanger sequencing data.

Why choose Genome Detective?

Analyzing Next-Generation-Sequence meta-genomic datasets is increasingly complex due to large data files, the need for large and regularly updated reference databases, and complex bioinformatics processing. Using Genome Detective, you can quickly and easily extract accurate, meaningful information from your sequence data.

Ease of use

Ease of use

Requires no software installation nor detailed bioinformatics knowledge.

Insightful reports

Insightful reports

Alignment and coverage views provide visual confirmation of identified viruses.

Accurate

Accurate

We use manually curated reference databases and advanced methods to obtain high specificity with high sensitivity.

Assembly

Assembly

Using de novo assembly allows to type highly diverged viruses and results in (genome) sequences that can be further analyzed.

Subtyping

Subtyping

For several species, e.g. Human Immunodeficiency Virus 1, we work with the research community to create and maintain subtyping tools.

We offer

Our Genome Detective Virus Tool is available online, or as locally installed software. Online, we offer you the option to evaluate the virus tool for free, or to subscribe to our premium package for routine use. The functionality and computing resources for the evaluation version are limited, but the identification and classification algorithms are the same for both versions. You are welcome to use our on line version or to contact us to design an on-premise installation for your lab or research group.
