GATC Biotech Inview Metagenome
GATC Biotech has launched its Inview Metagenome service for metagenome analysis. The service is based on next-generation sequencing of all DNA material in the sample. The protocol does not require amplification of taxonomic gene markers, and uses BioIT analysis based on comprehensive reference databases which enables the removal of host sequences and determination of community composition, the company said. The service is ideal for obtaining unbiased taxonomic profiles of microbial and viral communities for functional analysis or characterization, or antibiotic resistance and virulence factors, GATC added.
