metagenomics

The platform, based on the firm's Hi-C technology, is designed to assembly viral genomes from metagenomic samples and associate them with their microbial hosts.

Using metagenomic and bacterial reference genome sequences, researchers assembled a collection of bacteriophage genomes from individuals around the world.

By sequencing DNA from 14 feces-containing sediment samples from Spain, investigators found commensal microbes that appear to have lived in Neanderthal guts.

The partners will offer an end-to-end microbiome sequencing and analysis service through Transnetyx's global network of model organism research customers.
