Gene sequencing enables the diagnosis and characterization of human and animal diseases and the detection of environmental pathogens as never before. Analysis of gene sequences can detect genetic patterns which diagnose disease, characterize microorganisms, and infer drug resistant phenotypes. Sequencing is a  particularly valuable approach when the gene or organism in question can display unknown genetic variability.

Generating sequence data becomes inexorably quicker, easier, and cheaper. However, broad implementation into routine practice requires tools to cope with the rapidly increasing data burden. Solutions must be easy to use, configured for the purpose of the analysis, and kept up-to-date to reflect the evolving science. SmartGene's Service Modules meet all of these needs.

The permanent value of sequence data

Once sequence data are created in the laboratory, they have permanent value. Sequence data, stored securely in SmartGene, are kept available for future analysis and easy reinterpretation, both with updated algorithms and constantly refreshed reference databases.

DNA will never go out of date. So, SmartGene's modules allow customers to derive long-term benefits from today's sequencing activity, independent of the particular laboratory sequencing platforms. Laboratory hardware will be replaced over time, but the sequence data, secured within SmartGene, will always be valuable, accessible, and of permanent significance.
