De Novo Sequencing
Service Description

De novo sequencing refers to sequencing a novel genome where there is no reference sequence available for alignment.

The process of de novo genome sequencing involves the sequencing of small DNA fragments, and assembling the reads into longer sequences (contigs) and finally ordering the contigs to obtain the entire genome sequence.

With the advent of rapid, low-cost next-generation sequencing (NGS) technology, researchers can now obtain whole genome data for organisms previously considered too low a priority to sequence. The availability of this whole genome data has allowed large-scale genomic studies to be performed that were unimaginable just a few years ago.

BGI is a recognized leader in De Novo Whole Genome Sequencing and has been involved in the sequencing and assembly of 1000s of De Novo genomes and affiliated research published in the world’s leading journals.
