Microbial communities abound everywhere and exert powerful effects on their surroundings. For example, microbial diversity in the gut microbiome. The trillions of bacteria in the human gut—are associated with disorders ranging from diabetes mellitus and obesity to inflammatory bowel disease to cancer.
Metagenomics can leverage next generation sequencing to rapidly analyze the diversity of microbial communities and elucidate the role of constituent species. We offer a suite of metagenomics sequencing solutions ranging from targeted assays (16S for prokaryotes and ITS for fungi), metabarcoding for higher eukaryotes to whole genome analysis.
