Sanger sequencing is used to “read” the order of the four DNA nucleotides (A, C, G, T) in a particular DNA strand of interest. The newer next-generation sequencing (NGS) technologies work on the same principle, but typically at the whole-genome and whole-exome level. NGS technologies are being increasingly applied in life sciences and medical research, as well as in clinical medicine. Sanger sequencing remains applied in fields such as molecular biology, medicine, and biotechnology, and it is now also frequently used to validate the results for specific targets in NGS datasets.
Professionals working in DNA sequencing (DNA-Seq) analysis are typically highly skilled in bioinformatics, which draws on disciplines such as computer science, mathematics, life sciences, information technology, and statistics. They develop and apply models, algorithms, and software to collate, manage, and interrogate Sanger sequencing and NGS sequencing data, in order to answer specific research questions or to guide clinical practice.
There are also DNA and genome sequencing experts, who assist clients in planning and implementing the “front end” of their Sanger and NGS sequencing projects, i.e., the field and laboratory stage during which sampling and sequencing take place. Some experts specialize in writing in this field for academia, industry, and the media, particularly for medical communications.
Here are some of the tasks involved in DNA-Seq data analysis:
· Assistance with experimental design, quality control of sample material, and choice of the appropriate technique for sequencing library preparation
· Sequence data processing involving signal analysis of the raw data, base calling (determining which nucleotide base is present at each position), and scoring of the base quality
· Sequence alignment to a reference sequence/reference genome OR de novo sequence assembly (i.e., no reference is used to guide the assembly)
· Variant calling and structural variant calling (SNPs, indels, copy number variations, and structural variations)
· Functional and gene-based annotation to determine the effects of these variations
· Analysis and annotation of a newly sequenced organism’s entire genome
· Perform genetic mapping to help understand disease and find potential drug targets
· Analysis of differential gene expression between e.g., healthy tissue and cancerous tissue
· Application of sequence data as a tool for diagnosis and prognosis in personalized medicine
· Analysis of microbiome sequence data (viruses and bacteria)
· Phylogenetic analyses to see how different organisms are genetically related
DNA and genome analysts typically have a master’s or doctoral degree from a university. With the advent of NGS and “Big Data”, they are increasingly sought after to work in a variety of sectors, including academia, pharma, healthcare, and biotechnology. Their job titles range between Bioinformatician, Bioinformatics Analyst, Computational Biologist, Genome Analyst, and Genomic Data Analyst.
DNA and genome analysis experts are highly skilled specialists who are in increasing demand globally. For freelance consulting services, the fee generally ranges from 40–150 USD per hour depending on how specialized the required skillset is and the level of experience necessary.
The hourly fee can be negotiated upfront based on the estimated number of project hours, r a flat fee (for projects of a defined scope) can be discussed. If you need short-term/temporary access to sequence analysis services, then hiring a freelance consultant is a convenient and cost-effective approach to working with these experts.
The best way to attract the top Kolabtree freelancers in this field is to make your project description informative. You will need to provide information on the following:
· Skills required (e.g., genome-wide variant calling)
· What the project area is (e.g., gastric cancer)
· What the project entails (e.g., looking at the genetic variants that differentiate gastric cancer patients with poor survival)
· What the deliverables are (be specific about what you need the outputs to be)
· Duration of the project (provide an estimate of how many hours work you will need per week/by when you need the project to be completed)
· By when you need to hire (having more leeway on this will give you more time to choose the best expert for your needs)
· Your budget (per hour or fixed fee)
If you are unsure what exactly is required, providing as much detail as possible will allow the experts to still make an informed bid for your project and suggest the best routes forward.
If you require the services of a freelance DNA sequencing expert or genome sequencing consultant, then our platform provides an easy and effective means to access a range of skills from basic data analysis to advanced bioinformatic analysis.
