NGS data analysis, storage, and collaboration made easy Welcome to push-button informatics
BaseSpace is Illumina's genomics computing environment for next-generation sequencing (NGS) data analysis and management. This flexible solution is available as both a cloud and onsite bioinformatics solution. Now sequencing labs can easily and securely analyze, archive, and share sequencing data, and researchers can simplify and accelerate NGS data analysis with push-button tools. Labs can also set-up, and monitor their sequencing runs in real time from any Illumina instrument from the BaseSpace website, thereby experiencing a full sample to answer solution.
BaseSpace can be accessed via an intuitive web-based GUI, or a Linux-based command line interface.
*BaseSpace Onsite currently does not support HiSeq X.
Key features of BaseSpace, besides NGS data analysis, sample/run management, and cloud bioinformatics or onsite options, include:
BaseSpace offers a wide variety of NGS data analysis apps (tools). These include:
In addition to these publicly available Apps, users can run their own bioinformatics pipeline on BaseSpace as a private App.
Together, these apps cover the common data analysis methods used with Illumina sequencing data. These methods include RNA-Seq, exome /enrichment, amplicon, whole-genome sequencing (WGS), de novo assembly, and 16S metagenomics.
BaseSpace makes sample and run management easy using the Prep tab feature, an intuitive, graphical environment for one-stop library and run preparation.
The BaseSpace Prep tab also supports NeoPrep, Illumina’s automated library preparation solution.
The BaseSpace Onsite System is a local version of the BaseSpace cloud bioinformatics solution that enables you to safely and securely store, share, and analyze NGS data from MiniSeq, MiSeq, MiSeq Dx (in RUO mode), NextSeq 500, NextSeq 550, HiSeq 2500, HiSeq 3000, and HiSeq 4000 systems.
