Yeast Whole Genome Sequencing


We offer accurate and affordable whole-genome sequencing of yeast utilizing next-generation sequencing (NGS) or long-read sequencing technologies to detect diverse variations such as structural variations (SVs), insertions and deletions (InDels), single nucleotide variations (SNVs), and copy number variations (CNVs). Both short-read (Illumina platforms) and long-read sequencing platforms (Nanopore and PacBio platforms) are available to achieve whole-genome de novo assemblies and re-sequencing for yeasts.

Our Advantages:
  • Fast turnaround times, warm and professional customer service.
  • Advanced sequencing platforms, including Illumina HiSeq 2500/4000, MiSeq, PacBio, and nanopore platforms.
  • The experienced team provides a flexible experimental scheme and data analysis according to your specific needs.
  • Comprehensive, flexible bioinformatics analysis pipeline.

Introduction to yeast whole genome sequencing

Yeast whole genome sequencing represents the determination of the complete DNA sequence of a yeast’s genome in a single time, which entails chromosomal DNA as well as mitochondrial DNA. We utilize both NGS and long-read sequencing platform to provide both whole-genome de novo sequencing and re-sequencing of yeasts. De novo sequencing refers to the sequencing of a novel genome without reference sequence. The coverage quality of de novo assembly predominantly depends on the size and continuity of the contigs. Long-read sequencing including both Oxford nanopore and PacBio sequencing systems enables high-quality genome assembly with improved continuity as the contig N50 length is ten times longer than an NGS-only assembly. Highly accurate NGS data can be used to polish the genome assembly.

While yeast whole-genome de novo sequencing can be used to reconstruct the first genome map for yeast species, providing valuable reference genome for re-sequencing, whole-genome resequencing is commonly used to identify variations such as SNPs, InDels, SVs, CNVs, and other genetic changes, which may be potential biomarkers. Yeast whole genome sequencing provides an unparalleled opportunity to characterize the polymorphic variants in a yeast population, which comprehensively unravels the underlying mechanisms of origin, development, growth, and evolution of yeasts.
