Default Ion Torrent Data Analysis

Hi everyone,

I wanted to start a thread to get an idea what other ion torrent users are using/doing for their downstream data analysis. There are a number of preferred software vendors suggested by ion torrent including DNASTAR, Avadis NGS, Partek and NextGENe. Has anyone used these and do you have any recommendations? I am in the process of trying a few of them out and wanted to hear what other people thought.

I suppose whatever software you select depends on the type of work you are doing. I work in a microbiology lab so we will be doing some genome sequencing (so assemblies of genomes and alignments against a reference), RNA-seq (looking at transcript geography and expression levels) and possibly some ChIP-seq. I would be particularly interested to hear from other microbiologists who are doing similar work on the ion torrent but any feedback is welcome.
