Strand releases version NGS 3.0

City-based Strand Life Science, a global genomic profiling and bioinformatics company has announced the release of its latest version 3.0 of its flagship, next-generation sequencing (NGS) data analysis and visualisation platform, Strand NGS.

Speaking about the key highlight of this Strand NGS v3.0 release, Vijay Chandru, Chairman and MD, Strand Life Sciences said, “It is a DNA-Seq workflow that is 1.5 to two times faster than the BWA-GATK best practices workflow including increased accuracy for variant calling with precision/recall rates as high as 99/ 98% on the entire call set and 97/ 92% on InDels, and powerful visualisations for each step that are not present in GATK.”

The artificial intelligence platform, christened Strand Ramanujan, is used to enable clinicians to integrate phenotype information with all other clinical reporting for more effective application in monitoring and screening of disease progression and recurrence.

“In partnership with India’s largest cancer specialty hospital network, Health Care Global (HCG), Strand Ramanujan will create a clinical genomics data bank that will advance genomic medicine in oncology,” said Vijay Chandru.
