Fungal Whole Genome De Novo Sequencing

Inquiry      >

Fungi are crucial to the biosphere and human health due to their important medical and economic value. Some fungi are closely related to animals, plants, and other life forms by developing symbiotic relationships. Fungi also produce some secondary metabolites like penicillin, cyclosporine, and lovastatin, which have vital medicinal, agricultural, or cosmetic prosperities. Fungal whole genome de novo sequencing can help us better understand the fungal biodiversity, physiology, metabolism, and function. Our fungal whole-genome de novo sequencing based on next-generation sequencing (NGS) and long-read sequencing technologies can assist you to explore novel fungal species in an effective way.

Our Advantages:
  • The least degree of bias and longer read lengths (average > 15,000 bp, some reads >100,000 bp) generated by long-read sequencing instruments.
  • Advanced sequencing platforms: Illumina HiSeq, Nanopore MinION, and PacBio Sequel platforms.
  • Extensive experience in the industry of genomic service.

Introduction to our fungal whole genome de novo sequencing platform

We utilize both long-read and short-read sequencing technologies for fungal whole genome de novo sequencing. Both PacBio and Nanopore platforms are superior long-read sequencing platforms that generate reads with tens of kilobases in length for better genome reconstruction. A single molecule of DNA can be sequenced without the need for PCR amplification or chemical labeling of the sample. De novo assembly from long reads can span the low complexity and repetitive regions and create accurate assemblies. Additionally, we perform fungal whole genome de novo sequencing on Illumina HiSeq, which is a short-read sequencing platform with high accuracy.

Fungal whole genome de novo sequencing, which is used to explore novel fungal populations, enables the fungal genomes reconstruction, functional analysis, and evolutionary studies. This technique can provide insight into the biological diversity of fungi and yeast, thereby expanding research into agricultural science, ecology, bioremediation, medical science, cosmetic science, bioenergy, and biotechnology industry. We also provide fungal whole genome resequencing to detect variants, explore gene functions, and reconstruct phylogenetic trees.
