CD Genomics uses next-generation sequencing and long-read sequencing technologies (mainly Illumina HiSeq, Nanopore, and PacBio SMRT sequencing) to provide virus/phage sequencing services, and help your in-depth study of structural genomics and comparative genomics. Based on the virus genome sequencing platform, we provide resequencing and de novo sequencing strategies to construct draft or complete virus/phage genomes.
We are dedicated to providing outstanding customer service and being reachable at all times.Request a Quote
Phages are a group of viruses that invades bacteria, some of which can cause the lysis of the host bacteria, and some can also give the host bacteria the genetic material for extra biological characteristics. Bacteriophages “attack” bacteria and have strict host specificity, which depends on the molecular structures and complementarity of the phages and the receptors on the surface of the recipient bacteria. Bacteriophages are the most common and widely distributed viruses, which are usually abundant in places full of bacterial communities, such as soil and the gastrointestinal tract. Bacteriophages are the research object that cannot be ignored when studying microecology. And these researches provide industry opportunities that deserve attention.
Based on our second-generation sequencing and third-generation whole-genome sequencing platforms, we provide comprehensive and reliable phage whole-genome de novo sequencing, resequencing, and genetic analysis services. These sequencing technologies are also the tools to understand the biochemical interaction between prokaryotes and phages, and have been widely used in the food industry and medical research. For example, multiple drug resistance (MDR) has risen dramatically, and phage therapy may be an effective way to treat bacterial infections. Our phage sequencing service can help you discover biomarkers and develop non-antibiotic treatment methods.
Our bioinformatics services offer scientists custom analysis to address real issues apart from data quality control, gene alignment, genome assembly, and functional annotations. Our bioinformatics analysis services provide solutions for both academic and industrial needs. For more details, please refer to the following table.
