Overview Print Page


Partek Flow is a web-based application that uses popular algorithms for NGS raw data QA/QC, alignment, visualization, as well as RNA quantification and variant detection.  In addition to an embedded sophisticated RNA-seq workflow, the aligned reads can be transferred seamlessly to Partek Genomic Suite for advanced statistical and functional analysis.

Partek Flow has been implemented on both HPCC-NML Custom Condo and NML Bioinformatics Workstations.


Main Features

  • Accept all major types of NGS data in all common file formats:
    RNA-seq, DNA-seq, ChIP-seq, miRNA-seq, smallRNA-seq, Methylation-seq
  • Support all major NGS platforms:
    Illumina, Applied Biosystems, Roche 454, Helicos, Ion Torrent
  • Direct upload of sequence read files from all major sequencers
  • Web-based user-friendly interface enables easy access, data management, collaboration, workflow history, and task scheduling
  • Pre- and post-alignment QC/QA, subsampling and trimming.
  • Multiple aligners with recommended defaults yet fully customizable
    TopHat, TopHat2,BWA, Bowtie, Bowtie2, TMAP, SHRiMP2
  • Embedded RNA-seq workflow uses a sophisticated Gene Specific Analysis method to determine the best model for each gene's expression pattern.
  • Variant detection (SNP and indel)
  • Fusion genes detection
  • Chromosome view

Access @ USC

To use Partek Flow:

  1. Familiarize yourself with the user policy.
  2. Submit Partek Flow Access Request Form
  3. We will evaluate your needs and get back to you within 2 business days with follow-up instructions. 

Important notes:

  • Due to the fact that NGS analyses often take days or even weeks to process, users are required to submit a Flow Access Request Form for EACH data analysis project.
  • First-time Partek Flow users are required to meet with us for initial training and analysis set up.
