R&R is your go-to tool for

1. Sequence analysis

This operation consists of finding which part of the biological sequences are alike, and which part differs, during medical analysis and genome mapping processes.

2. Multiple sequence alignment

Align multiple sequences together to detect conserved regions.

3. Protein domain analysis

Find protein family/fold/structure annotation.

R&R²

R&R

  • Makes your life as a researcher much easier
  • Search simultaneously through the most popular  publicly available databases
  • Always continuously updated

 

Have every publicly known sequence and sequences included in patent databases right at your fingertips.

Enjoy a fast and convenient way of searching, relating and annotating sequences.

We do all the heavy lifting; you focus on what is really important in your research – discover new relationships in your data and make substantial progress in less time.

R&R+

  • Conveniently match, expand and search all your omics data
  • Add your own proprietary data and enjoy combining those with the public knowledge bases to enrich your work
  • Secure storage guaranteed

 

Did you build an extensive knowledge base yourself? Need access to tailored or third-party curated databases?

Easy, R&R + YOUR OWN DATA: expands the knowledge base you want to compare new or unknown sequences with.

Have all your research data made actionable and insightful without having to worry about scalability and exponentially increasing compute costs.

Unlike other bioinformatics tools, you only pay for the storage of your data. We will only encourage you to query it continuously, without any set limits.

R&R²

  • The crucial cog to boost your currently existing workflow
  • R&R² serves as a powerhouse to quickly align and relate your datasets of choice enabling unparalleled batch processing capabilities

 

Already developed a robust pipeline? Operating in an enterprise ecosystem? Perfect, because R&R² offers hyper scalability, handling of massive datasets or batch processes. It is tailored to be implemented right into your existing ecosystem through API or SDK connections.

We handle the normalisation, analysis, presentation, and cross-comparison. This way you enjoy our typical unprecedented process times, without having to worry about exponentially rising compute costs.

Just actionable data. You only pay for the data you store.

Features for omics analysis

Search

One search bar for all queries

Our tool’s search bar enables you to start searching DNA, RNA or Proteins as well as free text - meaning there is no need to set any preliminary search parameters or filters which restrict the search space.

Simply paste a biological sequence or certain functions, species or other metadata in the search bar to find similar sequences. Your results are immediately displayed on 3 levels: DNA, RNA and AA.

Filter

Filter with multiple granularities

Our philosophy is to keep things transparent and comprehensive.

Start with a global overview and then choose how to drill down into the details that suit your research question.

Exclude or include specific parameters and sequence details such as DNA, RNA, proteins or patents with an easy tabular function

Text-based Search

Start from free text

The unique capabilities of the HYFTsTM allow for combining textual data with biological sequence data.

In other words, searching by textual data is intrinsically linked to searching biological sequence data. With this, we increase the speed of search to results.

Unique results presentation

Quickly drill down and extrapolate

In the Explorer View, select or combine multiple dimensions such as taxonomy or ontology to quickly discover novelty functional relationships.

Obtain an overview for annotating functions, or discover other useful visual applications such as ontology maps, frequency tables or multiple sequence alignment views.

Alignment View

For DNA, RNA and AA sequences

Even if your input is a subsequence, the Biostrand’s signature multiple sequence alignment takes into account the whole sequence for aligning it.

No more query window bias. We make sure you always have all the information: both outside and inside your query window

Results List

Switch easily from overview to details

A handy overview bar helps to keep track of chosen filters which makes it easy to apply and reapply the filters.

You can simply click on a filter and it immediately shows the relevant insights and results.

Each main domain is associated with a specific filter.

Multiple data sources

Simultaneous search

Search simultaneously through the most popular public sources of multi‑omics data.

Experience no limits, do every search over all database without worrying about compute costs.

Comprehensive, fast, convenient.

"BioStrand is the missing link in the development of our innovations. It accelerates and improves the process, and pro-actively enables new types of developments. A great tool for bio-informaticians and genetic experts. It also helps the less specialised researchers like myself to accurately direct and guide the experts and their research."

‘Relate' becomes even more advanced. Relate turns into a recommendation engine used for sequence annotation.

Input can either be a biological sequence or FASTQ/ FASTA file (or comparable). BioStrand’s technology processes the input and finds all known domains based on available public data.

In conjunction with the search principle of multi-domain comparisons the researcher is able to effectively identify domains in the sequence and simultaneously correlate these domains to other known databases.
