Metagenomic sequencing constructs a library by directly extracting the DNA of all microorganisms from environmental samples, and explores the genetic composition and community function of all microorganisms by using the research strategy of genomics. It is a new concept and a new method on the basis of microbial genomics to study microbial diversity and develop new physiologically active substances (or obtain new genes).
The object of metagenomics research is the total DNA in a particular environment, rather than the total DNA in a specific microorganism or its cells. There is no need to isolate, culture and purify the microorganisms, which provides a new way for us to understand and utilize more than 99% of the uncultured microorganisms.
Metagenomic sequencing obtains the saturation data volume of a single sample by high-throughput sequencing of whole genome DNA in environmental samples. Based on de novo assembly, the structural diversity of the microbial community, explore the genetic composition and function of the microbial community, and the metabolic pathways related to the specific environment, so as to further study the applicable genes and the relationship between the microbes and the environment. The environmental microbial gene set can provide a gene resource library for the research, development and utilization of microorganisms in the environment.
Based on a complete metagenomic sequencing platform, we can achieve 16S metagenomic sequencing and viral metagenomic sequencing, so that the microbial community can be studied without cultivation. We also provide functional metagenomics to identify the genes coding for the carbohydrate-active enzyme, resistance genes, disease-causing genes, etc
The bioinformatics analysis services we offer are comprehensive, which include de novo assembly, gene prediction, gene analysis, gene functional annotation, diversity analysis, similarity analysis, association analysis and customized analysis according to your demands.
In general, our turnaround time is 1-3 weeks depending on the size of your project.
