OraSure Technologies Gut Metatranscriptomic Services

OraSure Technologies' Diversigen subsidiary has launched a service to provide metatranscriptomic sequencing and analysis of gut microbiome samples. 

The service will generate a gene expression profile of a sample's microbial community. Diversigen has optimized extraction methods for microbial mRNA, confirmed reproducible library preparation and sequencing approaches, and created a curated database with more than 190,000 genomes representing 31,000 species of microbes to allow profiling of gene expressions, pathways, and functional categories beyond what is possible with metagenomics or amplicon sequencing, the firm said.
