Phase Genomics ProxiMeta Hi-C

Phase Genomics has launched ProxiMeta Hi-C, a service that employs Hi-C sequencing on metagenomic samples to obtain complete individual genomes without culturing or high molecular weight DNA extraction. ProxiMeta Hi-C is based on capturing DNA with in vivo Hi-C so sequence reads can be traced back to their cell of origin. Researchers from the University of Washington first described the approach in 2014 in G3: Genes Genomes Genetics.
