CD Genomics is one of the leading service providers in the area of genomic sequencing and data analysis. The company can now offer qualified metagenomic sequencing services to address the many needs in the human genome, animal genome, plant genome, and microbiome research. Equipped with shotgun metagenomic sequencing platforms as well as long-read metagenomic sequencing platforms, CD Genomics has the capacity to offer comprehensive solutions for any type of sample. Their experienced bioinformatics team can even help researchers extract more valuable information from the sequencing data. —
Metagenomic shotgun sequencing targets the entirety of the genetic information contained in an environmental sample, which allows the taxonomic and biological functional characterization of polymicrobial communities in a cost-effective and time-efficient manner, making metagenomic shotgun sequencing an ideal method for microbial studies that cover a wide range of applications in myriad fields, including the food and medical industries, environmental and disease studies, as well as biomarker research.
CD Genomics has further optimized the process to exceed PacBio’s benchmarks in output and read length to support long-read metagenomic sequencing, reduce splicing errors, and effectively improve the resolution of microbial community profiling. With ~50% of reads longer than 50kb, the single read of long-read metagenomic sequencing is often able to exceed the size of repetitive elements in the average bacterial genome. Long-read metagenomics sequencing can also help researchers generate new insights into function and pathway facets of the microbiome, understanding and elucidating the relations between microbes and their habitat/host.
“Nowadays, more than 99% of microorganisms are currently difficult or cannot be purely cultured in the microbiology field, which means our knowledge of microbes is basically limited in less than 1% of microorganisms,” said one researcher who works on a joint project between the University of Borås and Northwest A&F University, “those uncultured microorganisms possess great application potential, their metabolites may produce amounts of valuable compounds. The emergence and development of metagenomic have made up for this deficiency and serve us commence to gradually explore and understand the potential micro-world.” He continued, “CD Genomics is one of the most notable companies in metagenomics.”
More than 70% of the scientists in CD Genomics hold a Ph.D. or Master's degree, all with extensive experience in microbial genomics. CD Genomics adopts an optimized workflow, efficiently providing both next-generation sequencing and long-read sequencing coupled with a cloud-based platform for bioinformatics analysis.
“Researchers have obtained many novel functional genes and active substances by using metagenomics. These genes and active substances have been widely distributed in various fields,” said Dr. Charlie of CD Genomics, “We consistently deliver high-quality data with flexibility and bioinformatics analysis based on customers’ requirements.”
CD Genomics provides comprehensive metagenomics solutions and downstream analysis that cover:
• Metagenomic Shotgun Sequencing
• Viral Metagenomic Sequencing
• Long-Read Metagenomic Sequencing
