Evaluate results

It is recommended to review the quality of your sequencing chromatograms before you use the plain text sequences.
Some sequence chromatogram viewers and analysis software is listed in "Software Links" section.

SequenceScanner v1.0 (Applied Biosystems) enables you to quickly view, edit, print and export sequence data generated using the Applied Biosystems Genetic Analyzers. The software helps you to:

  • Review all traces in thumbnail format and sort them by trace quality.
  • View simultaneously the analyzed and raw trace data for a single trace.
  • Spot sample failures with reports such as the Plate Report.
  • Export traces into commonly used presentation formats (.jpeg, pdf).
