Since the rapid development of mechanization in the 1970s, agriculture has bloomed rapidly. The use of pesticides, herbicides, fertilizers, and machinery has extensively improved agricultural production , while also deteriorated the ecological environment sharply. The serious phenomenon requires people to promote a green, sustainable mode of agriculture. Many studies indicate that the microbiome plays a significant role in many areas of agriculture, for example, increasing crop yields, improving animal health and productivity, developing microbial products, and protecting the environment. Scientists begin to believe that the increasing use of microbial science in agriculture will keep bringing plenty of greater unprecedented opportunities.Request a Quote
Thanks to the development of genomics and proteomics, we have a clearer understanding of the relationship between genes and traits. Based on our advanced genomics platforms and powerful bioinformatics tools, we are dedicated to exploring the structural and functional characteristics of soil microbial community, thereby selecting specific bacteria to remove harmful chemicals in soil, remove harmful pathogenic microorganisms, and increase beneficial microorganisms. With extensive experience in agricultural microbiome research, we provide comprehensive solutions to agricultural practice, pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, as well as academic and government agencies.
Our solutions include but are not limited to as follows:
DNA information enables us to analyze the physiological characteristics of the strains and screen the strains that can remove harmful chemicals in urban sewage, industrial waste water and municipal organic and solid waste. We can understand the decomposition capability of the microorganisms, and screen out the strains capable of quickly and efficiently converting straw, corn core, rice hulls, wood chips, cotton seed, mud carbon, sugar cane bagasse and crop straw into fodder or energy.
Beneficial Soil microorganisms such as nitrogen-fixing bacteria, nitrifying bacteria and saprophytic bacteria usually increase crop yield, while pathogenic microorganisms can cause diseases. We provide 16S/18S/TS sequencing service to reveal the diversity of soil microorganism; and we offer metagenomics service to study the relationships between microorganisms and crop yield, hence increasing crop yields and quality in sustainable harmony with the populations of beneficial soil microbes and getting rid of pathogens.Learn More
Microbial insecticides and fertilizers are environment-friendly products made from living organisms such as bacteria (e.g. mycoplasma and rickettsia), fungi, viruses, protozoans, algae, and associated metabolites or by-products. Understanding the proteins and genes of biotoxins that kill pests and thereby develop biopesticides, such as bacillus thuringiensis, is very helpful to develop modern green agriculture. And microbial fertilizers are used to benefit the soil and plants by increasing naturally active products or microbial inoculants.
Understanding the metabolic pathways of microorganisms enables modifications-making, allows them to convert plants to a burning methane, fuel alcohol, bio-diesel, bio-hydrogen, and so on. Microbial Fuel Cell (MFC) is an example that takes advantage of the microbial decomposition to directly convert the chemical energy in organic matter into electric energy.
The rumen, the first stomach of the ruminant, is located on the left side of the abdominal cavity. Rumen is rich in microorganisms, including bacteria, fungi and protozoa. We use molecular biology combined with high-throughput sequencing to help researchers explore the microbial community in the rumen. We also provide microbiological analysis of animals’ digestive tracts, such as the mouth, stomach, and feces.Learn More
