One Codex Microbiome Sequencing and Analysis Service

One Codex has launched an end-to-end microbiome sequencing and analysis service. The offering includes sample preparation, shotgun metagenomic sequencing, and analysis on One Codex's informatics platform. According to the company's website, customers provide stool samples to One Codex using the company's sample collection kits. The company extracts DNA and performs quality control checks to produce genomic DNA sequencing libraries, which are then sequenced to a depth of 2 million 2-by-150-bp read pairs. Sequencing data is then analyzed against the company's One Codex Database, consisting of 115,000 microbial reference genomes.
