Introduction to our metagenomic shotgun sequencing

Shotgun metagenomic sequencing allows us to comprehensively understand genes of all microorganisms presenting in a complex sample. This NGS-based method can detect rare microbes in the microbial communities that are likely to be missed or too expensive to detect using other methods. Our integrated metagenomic sequencing platform applies state-of-the-art sequencing systems, including Illumina HiSeq 2500 and HiSeq 4000 (PE 150), which produce at least 5 Gb raw data per sample. We promise more than 80% of bases with a Q30 quality score. In addition to this method, we also provide PacBio and Nanopore based long-read metagenomics and 16S/18S/ITS sequencing services.

Metagenomic shotgun sequencing can accelerate scientific research in the following areas: (i) the genetic diversity of host-associated microbial communities; (ii) the functional diversity of microbial communities; (iii) gene prediction and annotation; (iv) host-microbe interactions; (v) microbiota-based disease mechanisms. Our platform has the potential to help our customers from different backgrounds, including scientific research, medicine, agriculture, bioengineering, pharmaceutical industry, and environmental remediation.
