Viral Genome De Novo Sequencing

Inquiry      >

Viruses negatively impact the health of humans, plants, and animals. The effect of viral pathogens identification can act tremendously on infectious diseases, virology and public health. Based on our viral genome de novo sequencing platform, we help you reconstruct the complete viral genomes and detect genomic mutations, virulence changes, and explore viral evolution. The availability of viral genomes enables researchers to identify unknown pathogens and track variations and diversity of known pathogens.

Our Advantages:
  • Standardized laboratory with advanced, high-throughput sequencing technology platforms.
  • Extensive experience in handling various samples.
  • Keeping up with the frontiers of microbial genomics and bioinformatics analysis.
  • Next-generation and long-read sequencing platforms for sequencing of complex viral genomes.

Introduction to our viral genome de novo sequencing platform

Our viral genome de novo sequencing service leverages the next-generation sequencing (NGS) and long-read sequencing technologies to reconstruct viral genomes. We utilize the advanced illumina HiSeq, Oxford Nanopore, and PacBio SMRT platforms to quickly and efficiently generate high-resolution sequence data. Illumina HiSeq sequencing can offer higher throughput and have lower error rate, while PacBio SMRT and Oxford Nanopore sequencing have the advantage of longer read length, fast assembly, and can detect epigenetic modifications at the same time. Coupled with powerful bioinformatics platforms, we can help you reconstruct draft or complete viral genomes without gaps.

Viral genome de novo sequencing is utilized to discover and characterize viruses, which is crucial to the genetic study of the transmission dynamics, viral disease progression, and viral evolution. Our viral genome de novo sequencing platform can deliver the whole genome sequence and bioinformatics analysis including encoded information, synteny analysis, variation analysis, and evolutionary analysis. Viral genome de novo sequencing is a fast-developing technology with applications in public health monitoring and novel virus discovery.
