Analysis Visual Controller (AVC)

Analysis Visual Controller Overview

Illumina’s Analysis Visual Controller software v1.7 (AVC) provides a graphical user interface to perform a complete offline data analysis of a sequencing run. In the usual workflow, Real Time Analysis (RTA) will perform the image processing and base calling during the sequencing run. AVC will then be used to run CASAVA for alignment and variant detection (secondary analysis). AVC also supports image analysis, base calling, or alignment using the Offline Linux Basecaller (OLB) or the older analysis software Pipeline. In addition, AVC supports demultiplexing.

AVC has the following features: 

  • Provides an easy-to-use graphical user interface.
  • Runs from a Windows machine.
  • Can run the analysis software from a remote location.
  • Eliminates the need to use the Linux command line to run the analysis software.
  • Provides additional ways to curate your data.
  • Helps delete data that has been analyzed.
