Experts in metagenomics
Species composition and functional diversity with our metagenomics service
AllGenetics' whole-genome shotgun metagenomics service provides complete information about the species composition of an environmental sample, but also offers extensive information about functional diversity and metabolic networks.
Step 1: We isolate either DNA or RNA from your samples using tailored isolation protocols.
Step 2: We prepare genomic libraries using the kits recommended by Illumina.
Step 3: We sequence the libraries using the Illumina MiSeq, HiSeq, or NovaSeq technologies. It is standard to obtain 5 gigabases of raw data per library but we can adapt the output to your specific requirements.
Step 4: We analyse the high-throughput sequencing data to obtain your annotated metagenomes.
For your convenience, we can carry out the entire project or only those steps you require. As a norm, steps 2 and 3 should be ordered jointly.
What you receive
A report with a summary of the methods followed.
The raw high-throughput sequencing files, which will be delivered through our server.
The results of the bioinformatic analysis including demultiplexing, pre-processing and quality control of the raw data, binning, de novo assembly, taxonomic assignment, and automatic functional annotation.
If you require additional analyses, please let us know and we will do our best to meet your needs.
At no additional cost, our project specialists will be available to you after project delivery and during the editorial process of your scientific articles. We offer up to five 60-min sessions per project, depending on the project size.
