Strand NGS v2.8 Released
We are happy to announce the release of Strand NGS v2.8. This release focuses on support for large genomes, large scale sample processing, and performance improvements. A brief description of few selected features is listed below. For more details, please refer to the release notes.
Support for Large Genomes
Strand NGS now supports alignment to genomes larger than 4 billion bases such as the wheat genome
Fixed trimming after adapter trimming
During alignment, fixed trimming can now be performed after adapter trimming using the options in the Tools->Options menu. This allows users to easily handle data from protocols that use randomized adapters such as the Nextflex small RNA protocol from Bioo Scientific.
Merging the coverage tracks
Genome browser in Strand NGS supports the merging of the coverage tracks and visualizing them against a common ruler.
Strand NGS v2.8 is now supported on Windows 10. Many improvements and bug fixes are also made in split read alignment, local realignment, logging, VCF export, etc. All these features are incorporated into this release based on your invaluable feedback and we hope you continue to let us know your requirements.
