Pathogens Capture Sequencing


Rapid and accurate retrieval of whole genome sequences of human pathogens from disease vectors or animal reservoirs will enable fine-resolution studies of pathogen epidemiological and evolutionary dynamics. However, next generation sequencing technologies have not yet been fully harnessed for the study of vector-borne and zoonotic pathogens, due to the difficulty of obtaining high-quality pathogen sequence data directly with a high ratio of host to pathogen DNA.

CD Genomics' pathogens capture is designed to enrich genomes of different pathogens and their subtypes, which could be further analyzed through next generation sequencing platforms. This panel platform is cost-effective and effectively help researchers to identify different types of pathogens, analyze mutations on the pathogens and explore pathogenic mechanism, providing a new insight into medical research.
