CD Genomics Intensifies Whole-Genome Sequencing for Microbial G

  • Established in 2004, CD Genomics aims at providing the best genomics service ever since. Devotes itself to promoting the progress of genomics research. Empowered by leading technology and over a decade of experience in microbiology, CD Genomics MicrobioSeq division leverages state-of-the-art sequencing platforms including Illumina, PacBio SMRT, Oxford Nanopore, and more. To compensate for amplicon sequencing of microorganisms, CD Genomics offers Microbial Whole-Genome Sequencing to address the needs.

    The microbial whole-genome sequencing platform at CD Genomics resolves whole-genome assemblies, especially for repeat-dense and GC-rich genomes, as well as plasmids. Based on the resulting genomic information, it is viable to predict the functional elements of the genome, annotate gene function, and conduct comparative genome studies, identify SNPs and InDels, and discover other genetic alterations among microbial strains. The platforms can be used to sequence the complete genome of bacteria, archaea, fungi, viruses, algae, and protozoa by microbial de novo sequencing or resequencing, assisting researchers to investigate the whole genome of novel or known microorganisms in an efficient and economical way.

    CD Genomics has extensive experience in microbial genomics service, more than 70% of the team is composed of Ph.D. and Masters-level scientists. They adopt an optimized rapid and efficient workflow, providing both next-generation sequencing and long-read sequencing coupled with a cloud-based platform for bioinformatics analysis.

    “We will choose the most appropriate sequencing strategy and data analysis pipeline based on your sample and research purpose. With the microbial whole-genome sequencing platform, we provide bacterial whole-genome sequencing, fungal whole-genome sequencing, and viral whole-genome sequencing,” said Dr. Charlie of CD Genomics. “Our services have satisfied the needs of numerous researchers.”

    “Whole-genome sequencing is a handy tool for profiling gene functions of microorganisms,” said scientists from the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences, University of Copenhagen, “we are fascinated with anti-virulence genes that exist in bacteria, which lead to the suppression of bacterial virulence. CD Genomics provided us exactly what we wanted with Illumina Genome Analyzer IIx.”

    CD Genomics provides comprehensive microbial whole-genome sequencing services that cover both de novo sequencing and resequencing of a wide spectrum of microbes including but not limited to bacteria, fungus, and viruses. CD Genomics offers intact workflow from sample preparation to report delivery, the bioinformatics analysis covers data quality control, genome assembly, gene function annotation, functional element prediction, and comparative gene analysis. Other than fundamental sequencing services, CD Genomics also helps researchers put the technologies into practice – applying to human/animal health, environment, agriculture, pharma, and many other fields.
