CD Genomics proprietary GenSeqTM Technology provides comprehensive Metagenomics sequencing services which have ability to reveal the previously hidden diversity of microscopic life. Metagenomics offers a powerful lens for viewing the microbial world that has the potential to revolutionize understanding of the entire living world.
Metagenomics is the study of metagenomes, genetic material recovered directly from environmental samples. The broad field was referred to as environmental genomics, ecogenomics or community genomics. Recent studies use "shotgun" Sanger sequencing or next generation sequencing (NGS) to get largely unbiased samples of all genes from all the members of the sampled communities.
16S and 18S ribosomal RNA (rRNA) – Long reads span multiple variable regions, enabling high-resolution species identification (Figure).
CD Genomics offers a complete range of metagenomics solutions:
Study diversity in environmental microbial communities using the MiSeq and ion torrent platforms. These Systems have become the standard for RNA identification and whole genome surveys having enabled an unprecedented view of microbial diversity in such environments as the human gut and mouth, soil, coral reefs, deep sea thermal vents, drinking water, and much more.
