The team's assembly represents 95 percent of the genomic sequence of barley, the most complete version of that genome to date. 

Seeq has much in common with DNA.Land, launched last year, but targets individuals who have not used services from direct-to-consumer testing companies

Researchers found that metagenomic sequencing is better than fecal culture at identifying antimicrobial-resistant bacteria in pediatric patients.

The researchers hope to identify new bacterial species, mine data for new antibiotics, and characterize the prevalence of antimicrobial resistance genes. 

Researchers used whole-genome and metagenomic sequencing to study how microbial communities changed and adapted to slightly different soil conditions after a tsunami. 

The results suggest that use of the drug cefprozil in patients with low initial microbial diversity might allow blooms of opportunistic pathogens.

The firm plans to incorporate mtDNA analysis into its preimplantation genetic screening services this month.
