Diversigen offers a variety of metagenomic services along with multiple other services encompassing consulting, bioinformatics, culturing, and imaging. We provide consulting services for experimental design, execution and analysis of metagenomic projects. Our group of qualified personnel, experienced in the areas of study design, sample handling, extraction, sequencing, data analysis, data interpretation, and more place us at the forefront of the microbiome field. We offer multiple high-throughput next generation sequencing (NGS) applications for the characterization of clinical, environmental, and industrial samples. Additionally, we provide fast and reliable turnaround of high quality sequencing data, competitive pricing, and personalized customer service. Our metagenomic services include:
16S rRNA GENE SEQUENCING AND qPCR
Provides a common and reliable method for the characterization of the bacterial community associated with a given sample. The analysis for 16S includes phylogenetic or taxonomic classification, alpha and beta diversity comparisons, and cluster analyses. We are able to achieve accurate bacterial classification from isolated bacterial colonies or a mixed sample from any source.
18S rRNA GENE / ITS SEQUENCING AND qPCR
Provides a common and reliable method for the characterization of microbial eukaryote lineages including fungi. We are able to achieve accurate taxonomic classification from isolated fungi or other complex samples.
METAGENOMIC (WHOLE GENOME SHOTGUN) SEQUENCING
This service is a powerful method for detection, characterization, and quantification of microbial species. We provide reliable taxonomic classification, often to the species or strain level. We also perform gene content assessment for genes of interest or categories of interest and can assemble genomes through the alignment of contigs and scaffold reads.
SINGLE ORGANISM GENOME SEQUENCING
This is an excellent tool for assembling complete genomes de novo or by mapping to reference genomes. This service is applicable to bacterial and viral genomes.
MICROBIAL RNA/TRANSCRIPTOME SEQUENCING
We can provide a tool for the determination and quantity of RNA from a genome at the time of sample collection. This enables the characterization of the genome expression profile or transcriptome associated with simple or complex sample types.
VIRAL METAGENOMIC SEQUENCING
This service provides a tool for the detection and characterization of viral species in simple or complex sample types. This allows for the detection of both eukaryotic and prokaryotic viruses (bacteriophages) of all genome types.
