As open sequencing platforms, both BGISEQ-500 and BGISEQ-500n can support almost all types of mainstream application analysis software. For
common projects such as WGS and WES, standard analytical processes are provided on our official website seq500.com. In addition, seamless
connection of sequencing data on cloud analytics platforms is also supported.
How does the data analysis process of BGISEQ-500 operate?
The sequencing data of BGISEQ-500 is in the common "FastQ" format. Based on specific sequencing applications, BGISEQ-500 supports not only built-in
application analytical software of the system, but also localized analytics software and other general information analytics software such as soap, bwa,
GATK, etc. In addition, it also supports seamless connection of sequencing data on various cloud analytics platforms such as BGI Online. For more

Which application analysis software is installed in the BGISEQ-500 sequencer and BGISEQ-500n sequencing system?
BGISEQ-500 sequencing process involves three phases: sample preparation, sample loading and sequencing analysis. You may build a library manually
or automate the process by using MGISP-100 automatic library building tool. Our automatic sample loading system BGIDL-50 can then be used to load
the generated DNB onto an arrayed silicon wafer using specific loading technologies. Upon completing a series of pretreatment works such as sample
preparation and loading, the sequencing chip would be put into the sequencer for sequencing. Thereafter, the corresponding high-performance application
analysis software can be used to generate standard/customized professional analysis reports according to the various sequencing application
What is the operating process of BGISEQ-500?
At present, BGISEQ-50 supports 160M effective signal points for a single chip, for which read length is SE50 and each run can generate 8G of data. The
maximum load per day is 2 runs, allowing 16G of data to be generated each day. Moreover, BGISEQ-50 can execute sample loading, sequencing and
report generation within 10 hours. Combined with the optional automatic sample preparation system MGISP-100, BGISEQ-50 can complete the entire
process within 18 hours, including sample preparation, sample loading, sequencing and analysis.
