Metagenomics

We offer two different strategies for your metagenomics projects

16S ribosomal RNA gene sequencing

Sequencing of the 16S ribosomal RNA gene of all taxonomic units in the sample. A simpler and cost-effective approach to examine metagenomic diversity at a higher level.

ORDER a 16S analysis


Shotgun metagenomics

A more complex experiment that relies on Illumina kits (Nextera Flex, TruSeq PCR-free, TruSeq Nano). Provides a higher taxonomic resolution at the cost of significantly more complex bioinformatics analyses.
