De novo sequencing of non-human organisms
De novo sequencing allows obtaining the first genome sequence of a living organism. The arrival of Next Generation Sequencing has provided researchers with a real and affordable possibility to obtain data from the entire genome of any organism, something that was impossible so far for its exorbitant cost. The availability of the complete sequence of a genome facilitates the design of routine genomic studies with affordable techniques, which allows the study of many other individuals and the realization of large-scale projects that were impossible to carry out for a long time.
The analysis and comparison of genomic sequences individually or at the population level allow the study of genetic variation, the identification of genetic markers and the identification of genes responsible for certain phenotypic characteristics of interest.
Sequencing of microorganisms
Bacteria and other microorganisms make up most of the terrestrial biomass, in which they have reproduced successfully for 3800 million years. The study of certain bacterial characteristics can have great implications for health, the environment, energy and industrial applications. Thanks to the massive sequencing platforms and our bioinformatic expertise, we can offer cost-efficient and fast services for microbial genome sequencing.
Metagenomics is based on the analysis of DNA extracted directly from microbial communities. The NGS technologies allow the study of collective genomes, and the obtaining of the sequence of all the microorganisms that make up a certain colony, through the sequencing of the genetic material directly recovered from it. Metagenomics will allow us to know the enormous microbial diversity that inhabits natural environments without the need to cultivate in controlled environments, which will allow the discovery of new molecules for therapeutic and biotechnological applications.CONTACT US TO PERSONALIZE YOUR STUDY
