IGX Platform 1.1 is now available offering a number of speed and quality control enhancements
After months of hard work, development, and testing, we are proud to announce that the IGX Platform 1.1 is now available. Designed to improve your immune sequencing workflow, it features a number of significant IGX-Profile app enhancements, and a new quality assurance tool.
The amount of data typically generated in repertoire sequencing experiments is ever increasing. In order to keep the user experience at its best, data processing tools, such as IGX-Profile, need to co-evolve. The new IGX-Profile 2.0 release offers significant improvements in the alignment procedure speed and memory usage. We completely revamped its codebase allowing it to scale up to hundreds of millions of sequences.
Technical variation can be introduced at various stages in the process and should be accurately corrected in order for repertoire sequencing data to have biological and therapeutic meaning. It is important to perform a thorough quality inspection on every individual sample as well as on the batch as a whole, which makes quality control a challenging and labor-intensive process.
IGX-Inspect is a new app designed to analyze the quality of raw sequencing data (FASTQ) as well as annotated clone summaries processed by IGX-Profile. Batch and sample level quality statistics are coupled through interactive visualizations, allowing users to easily identify batch effects and perform thorough inspection on samples of concerning quality. The app features the following plots:
- – Average Sample Quality
- – Average Base Quality
- – Read Length Distribution
- – Read Fate Distribution
