Large numbers of microscopic life forms exist in Earth's water, such as glacier meltwater, seawater, sewage. Microorganisms, including archaea, bacteria, fungi and protists (protozoa and algae), dominate the ecological processes. Some of these microbes are key participants in biogeochemical processes which are of great importance to the entire ecosystem. Some microorganisms play an important role in the processes that control water quality, while some are crucially involved in pollution in the environment. Therefore, studying the diversity and community structure of microorganisms in water is crucial to protect the sources of water and develop sewage treatment.Request a Quote
Based on our Illumina Hiseq/Miseq, Ion PGM, PacBio SMRT sequencing, and Nanopore sequencing platforms, we can not only help you identify the microorganisms presented in the water, but also analyze their diversity, abundance, and the relationship between the water environments and the microbiomes. Besides, we also provide qualitative and quantitative studies of the water microbiome base on real-time qPCR.
Note: our service is for research use only.
DNA samples of water microbiome from different water sources (including river, lake, glacier meltwater, seawater, sewage, etc.) can be tested.
Archaea, bacteria, fungi, protists, etc.
We are equipped with Illumina Hiseq/Miseq, Ion PGM, PacBio SMRT systems, Nanopore systems, PCR-DGGE (PCR-denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis), real-time qPCR, clone library, and other detection platforms.
