Biomedical Genomics Analysis Plugin

The Biomedical Genomics Analysis plugin offers workflows and tools for all steps from the initial data processing and quality assurance through data analyses, annotation, and reporting.

Applications and workflows

  • QIAseq Panel Analysis
  • GeneRead DNAseq Gene Panel Analysis
  • Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS)
  • Whole Exome Sequencing (WES)
  • Targeted Amplicon Sequencing (TAS)
  • Whole Transcriptome Sequencing (WTS)

When the plugin is installed, additional workflows will be accessible from the Toolbox under Ready-to-Use Workflows.


Figure 1. The Ready-to-Use Workflows in the Toolbox upon installing the Biomedical Genomics Analysis plugin.


QIAseq Panels analysis workflows

QIAseq Panels analysis workflows for Targeted DNA, Targeted RNAscan and Targeted RNA catalogue and custom panel data can be launched from a dedicated guide interface. The guide provides direct upload of both Illumina and Ion Torrent reads, and the preconfigured workflows can be run using both Illumina and Ion Torrent data. Just click through the tabs to identify the relevant panel and run the workflows directly from the guide. A list of supported QIAseq panels can be found here.

QIAseq Panel Expert Tools

A collection of QIAseq Panel Expert Tools is installed in the Tools section of the Toolbox. These tools handle Unique Molecular Indices (UMIs) panel data generated by Single Primer Extension (SPE) protocols.

Functionality for seamless upload of analysis results to QCI Interpret

The QIAseq Panel Expert Toolbox contains a tool for upload of variants and detected fusions to QCI Interpret. This tool allows prefiltering in relation to genes, regions or variant types before upload. In order to use this functionality please contact sales to purchase a license for QCI Interpret.

QIAGEN GeneRead Panels

QIAGEN GeneRead Panels can be analyzed using a ready-to-use workflow that can identify and annotate variants in Targeted Amplicon Sequencing data generated with catalogue and custom GeneRead DNAseq Gene Panels.

Comprehensive collection of Ready-to-Use Workflows

The application workflows are specific to the type of data used as input: Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS), Whole Exome Sequencing (WES), Targeted Amplicon Sequencing (TAS) and Whole Transcriptome Sequencing (WTS). For each of the first three categories, WGS, WES, and TAS, General Analysis workflows can be used for identification and annotation of variants irrespective of disease. Somatic Cancer workflows have been designed specifically for cancer research, including single sample and Tumor-Normal pairs. Hereditary Disease workflows can be used to study variants that cause rare diseases or hereditary diseases (HD) using single sample, Trio and Family of Four study designs.

In addition, application workflows for Whole Transcriptome Sequencing are provided.
