SEQdata-BEACON is a comprehensive database of sequencing performance and statistical tools for performance evaluation and yield simulation in BGISEQ-500. It provided curated information of 65 metrics from about sample, yield, quality, machine state and supplies information. A total of 60 BGISEQ-500 instruments in the BGI-Wuhan lab were used to collect sequencing performance data. Lanes in paired-end 100 (PE100) sequencing using 10 bp barcode were chosen, and each lane was assigned a unique entry number as its identification number (ID). We explored our database to describe the statistical results of metric features and to construct a yield simulation model based on yield-related metrics. The data-mining applications include browsing a preliminary view of the overall features of the metrics, request the distribution of their metrics and predicting yield.
We welcome all the users to browse our statistical results and test the yield simulation model, and are very glad to receive all the comments or questions about our database and website.
