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.

Scientists from Los Alamos National Laboratory have written a computer program to identify bacteria and viruses in metagenomes with fewer false positive matches.

The companies can use all pooled patents to develop and sell their respective LDTs, while Illumina will have the rights to develop an IVD kit.

An NGS-based method of sequencing circulating cell-free DNA could work as a noninvasive monitor organ transplantation rejection and infection.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Anticipating a future in which metagenomics becomes the norm in detecting and diagnosing infectious diseases like tuberculosis, researchers from the University of Warwick in the UK have published a study demonstrating that direct metagenomic sequencing of DNA in sputum samp
