Gain critical genetic insight into bacteria and viruses with microbial sequencing. Whether you are performing metagenomics studies, or monitoring disease outbreaks, our broad base of microbial next-generation sequencing (NGS) methods will help you discover answers, faster and more efficiently than you ever thought possible.
User-friendly reagents and software allow you move seamlessly though the sequencing workflow, from sample preparation to biological interpretation of data. Learn more about a variety of microbial sequencing methods below.
16S and Internal Transcribed Spacer (ITS) ribosomal RNA (rRNA) sequencing are common amplicon sequencing methods used to identify and compare bacteria or fungi present within a given sample, and can identify strains that may not be found using traditional methods.Learn About 16S and ITS rRNA Sequencing
With the ability to combine many microbial sequencing samples in a single run and obtain high sequence coverage per sample, shotgun metagenomic sequencing can detect very low abundance members of the microbial community that may be missed with other methods.Learn About Metagenomic Sequencing
Unlike hybridization-based methods such as microarrays, microbial RNA sequencing enables unbiased strand-specific identification of common and novel transcripts.Learn About Microbial Transcriptomics
NGS-based whole-genome sequencing (WGS) allows microbiology researchers to sequence hundreds of organisms with the power of multiplexing. Unlike traditional methods, no labor-intensive cloning steps are needed.Learn About Microbial WGS
