Experts in bacterial genome sequencing
Characterise your bacterial strains through our whole genome sequencing service
We are eager to tailor our protocols to the needs of your research project: therefore, we can take advantage of both short-read (Illumina) or long-read (PacBio) sequencing technologies, and perform on-demand, custom bioinformatic analyses.
We isolate DNA from your samples using specific DNA isolation protocols for bacterial cells.
We prepare genomic libraries using the kits recommended by Illumina.
We sequence the libraries using Illumina's MiSeq or NovaSeq technologies. As a norm, we obtain 500 megabases of raw data per library but we can adapt the output to the genome size of the species under study.
We analyse the high-throughput sequencing data to obtain your annotated genomes.
