Universal Analysis Software (UAS) provides a next-generation sequencing (NGS) platform for analyzing and managing forensic genomic data, simplifying complex bioinformatics. Offering three analysis modules, one for ForenSeq mtDNA Whole Genome and ForenSeq mtDNA Control Region workflows, one for the ForenSeq DNA Signature Prep workflow, and one for the ForenSeq Kintelligence workflow, UAS rapidly generates FASTQ files, performs alignment, and calls variants from NGS data. Extensive testing backs highly reliable variant calls to deliver accurate results in a user-friendly package with no per-seat licenses.
Designed specifically for forensic analysts, UAS recovers the maximum amount of information from challenging samples and complex mixtures with base-by-base sequence resolution. Laboratories can focus on routine casework or leverage population statistics, phenotypic estimation, dynamic filters, and more to explore all possibilities for human identification. Flexible analysis methods can analyze mtDNA data from home-brew and third-party libraries sequenced on the MiSeq FGx Sequencing System.
