Interpreting genomic data often depends on previously discovered associations. Researchers need to share data with collaborators in the scientific community to advance the field. As genomic methods become more commonplace, Illumina offers an increasingly wide breadth of flexible and efficient tools for sharing data, accessing public databases, and formatting data for publications.
Sequencing data has traditionally been difficult for non-bioinformatics experts to understand. Illumina solutions simplify this with intuitive report formats tailored to biologists, available in publication-ready formats.
With Illumina sequencing data analysis tools, researchers can select raw sequencing data and interface with numerous secondary analysis options. Selected workflows can be launched at the click of a button, and designed to output user-friendly reports. The file formats we provide make it easy to share with collaborators or with public databases.
A laboratory information management system (LIMS) can facilitate the management of samples flowing through the lab, and provide easy access to information from all phases of the workflow. Data can be extracted in various formats for downstream analysis, collaboration, and final reports.
With user-friendly software solutions, researchers can devote less effort converting data to results, and more time focusing on the next cycle of research.
BaseSpace Sequence Hub Apps simplify genome-scale data for four of the most commonly used biological applications. The apps can aggregate multisample reports, provide job completion notification on mobile devices, and enable efficient file organization for collaboration and sharing.Read Data Sheet
Faster, automated lab procedures lead to faster and more efficient experiments and more reliable results. And when reliable results are received quickly, research findings can be published sooner.
To enable publication, any informatics solution must be as good at helping scientists get data out of the system as it was at helping scientists get the data in. A LIMS maximizes instrument efficiency; automates critical data capture, quality control, and analysis pipelines; and keeps samples flowing through the lab while tracking associated data and keeping information easily accessible. It should also offer a variety of options for accessing stored data, from ad hoc searches to sophisticated reporting frameworks that can also be used to create custom queries and reports.
A robust API can also help scientists and internal programmers extract data into the format needed for downstream analysis. And once that analysis is complete, scientists can choose any number of ways to summarize and communicate results.
Sharing large sets of data with collaborators has traditionally been an exercise in frustration, involving arcane FTP protocols, hard drive limits, and incompatible device interfaces.
With BaseSpace Sequence Hub, sharing data with trusted collaborators is as simple as clicking a button. Sharing is instantaneous and accessible everywhere. Data are never physically moved, because all invited collaborators are looking at the same data, not a copy of the data.
Individual sequencing runs or entire projects can be shared – the choice is yours. You maintain control of the shared data, and with whom it is shared. You can even transfer ownership of your data to others if desired. BaseSpace Sequence Hub gives you complete control.
