As a leading provider of NGS services, CD Genomics is providing comprehensive whole genome sequencing (WGS) solutions for samples of human and other species, in order to help you dissecting the genetic differences and implications.

Whole Genome Sequencing

Whole genome resequencing is a process that determines the complete DNA sequence of an organism's genome by comparing sequences with a known reference genome. Whole genome resequencing plays a role in identifying DNA biomarkers such as single nucleotide polymorphism (SNPs), insertions and deletions (Indels), structure variations (SV), copy number variations (CNV) and other genetic changes of the sequenced species with high accuracy, it also provides an unprecedented opportunity for characterizing the polymorphic variants in a population, which comprehensively unravels the underlying mechanisms of species origin, development, growth, and evolution. What’s more, whole genome re-sequencing is an indispensable part of genome-wide association study (GWAS), where common genetic variants in different individuals are assessed to determine if a variant is associated with a particular phenotype. These can be broadly used in food safety, clinics, agriculture and in the future personalized medicine. WGS has become a rapid efficient method to unravel the underlying mechanisms of species origin, development, growth, and evolution at the genomic level.

Whole Genome Sequencing

Human whole genome re-sequencing provides the most comprehensive collection of an individual’s genetic variation, which allows discovering potential correlations to certain disease risks. In addition to human genomes, CD Genomics also supports whole genome sequencing of a wide range of species including plants, animals, fungi, bacteria, and viruses. Both paired-end library and mate-pair library can be constructed in the library preparation step.
