What is RNA Baser ?

RNA Baser represents an extension of DNA Baser, specialized in processing rRNA sequences. It is optimized for early integration of sequence and metadata. This way, the metadata will stay attached to the primary sequence information throughout the complete workflow of sequence analysis, until final submission.

- In addition, it is optimized for data exchange with standard non-commercial software used for rRNA sequence analysis and submission.

- It is a joint project of HeracleSoftware, Ribocon GmbH and Max Planck Institute for Marine Microbiology in Bremen, Germany

How are we helping you to analyze your rRNA sequences faster?

1. RNA Baser is performing for you all the tedious steps in sequence assembly:

- bad end trimming

- ambiguous bases correction

- vector removal

2. Interface designed with one purpose in mind: to minimize the user hands on time.

- synchronized display of the contig map, contig alignment and chromatograms

- fast navigation between one ambiguous bases: in more than 96% of the cases you don't need to make any correction. DNA Baser already has done it for you.

3. Assemble one clone library in one step:

Additionally to the single contig assembly mode, RNA Baser is offering the possibility to assemble hundreds of contigs in batch mode. Practically, due to the excellent quality check performed by RNA Baser (more than 96% of the errors are corrected), you can directly use the generated sequences for further analysis.

4. Fast integration of metadata in the sequence information:

- keep sequence and environmental parameters information together; in this way, you will always know were your sequence is coming from

- fast submission to the databases of all relevant data.

With RNA Baser , you can:

Assemble or align to a reference sequence

Batch assemble or align in groups of sequences by name

Automatically end clip

Automatically trim vector sequences

Import sequences from ABI, SCF, FASTA and SEQ

View and edit sequence traces

Mark specific regions (like discrepancies, low-quality areas in chromatograms) with visible colors and quickly navigate to these regions

Convert between different file formats (ABI,SCF, FASTA, multi-Fasta...).

More details about sequence assembly and contig editing can be found in the video below.

RNA Baser price

The package is offered at a very affordable price, making it ideal for universities, research institutions, or private companies performing DNA sequencing. Discounts apply if you purchase more than one license.

ARB Silva

ARB Silva Opens in a new window is a comprehensive on-line resource for quality checked and aligned ribosomal RNA sequence data, free for academic use. SILVA provides comprehensive, quality checked and regularly updated databases of aligned small (16S/18S, SSU) and large subunit (23S/28S, LSU) ribosomal RNA (rRNA) sequences for all three domains of life (Bacteria, Archaea and Eukarya).
