Our Research and Development achievements

Life and Soft multidisciplinary team offers a strong expertise in various research domains.

Single cell RNAseq

We have developed full single cell RNAseq solution, to help scientist interpret their data. Our solution includes robust bioinformatic pipeline to compute expression matric from sequencing raw data. A second biostatistics part has been designed to answer several biological problematics from the complete description of a cell population to the comparison of samples. Our solution uses state-of-art tools and methodologies as well as in-house algorithms to give a full report of your experiments.

In-Silico fastq generation

One critical point in bioinformatics is the validation of pipeline composed of a succession of different tools. Most of the published algorithms have been developed based on a specific dataset and should be adapted to the current produced data. Bioinformatics workflow can be validated with the sequencing of characterized samples (like mock), but because of the variability induced by the experimental procedures, this can not be used as a unique validation. The use of in silico data copies sequencing data but are completely controlled. This can be used to validate and configure a bioinformatics pipeline without the experimental induced variability.

16S sequencing data analysis

Microbiome can be studied with several technologies. One of the most culture-free used method is the sequencing of the 16S ribosomal RNA gene by NGS. 16S rRNA gene is approximately 1,500 bp long and contains nine variable regions interspersed between conserved regions. This variable regions can be used in phylogenetic and taxonomic classifications. Life and Soft have developed a powerful tool that can be used to analyze 16S sequencing data and report several metrics useful for metagenomics analysis like the OTUs assignation and computation of samples diversity.

Long range sequencing with Nanopore®

Nanopore MinION® is an innovating technology that offers promises for the future of sequencing. It allows the sequencing of native DNA after PCR-free library creation. We have invested in this technology for our new laboratory activity and performed different proof-of-concepts to validate the approaches on mock metagenomics samples. Dedicated workflows have been developed by our team: algorithms and published tools have been tested and validated to construct the best workflow. We propose to guide you for full POC from the sequencing with MinION® to the analysis of the results for your different problematics.


Life and Soft has established strong partnerships with technologies leaders to provide our customers with best-in-class solutions.
