Low-Pass Whole Genome Sequencing

Plant and Animal Low-Pass Whole Genome Sequencing

Plant and animal low pass whole genome sequencing provides a more comprehensive, accurate and efficient tool for large-scale genomics projects that traditionally have used legacy technology such as genotyping arrays. The lpWGS approach outperforms the arrays by providing an order of magnitude more data, greater statistical power, enhanced variant discovery capabilities.

Plant and Animal Low Pass Whole Genome Sequencing Introduction

Plant and animal low pass whole genome sequencing (lpWGS) involves sequencing the entire genome of a plant/animal species at low sequencing depth. 

Our end-to-end workflow can support you with a broad range of species, including: cattle, pig, chicken, dog, cat, rat, mice, corn, rice, soybean and pea. We also evaluate and accept custom projects on a case-by-case basis. We can perform deep sequencing for a select number of individuals and build a well assembled reference genome for imputations.

More than 99% accurate whole genome variant calls

High-throughput and cost-effective

Flexible set-up of new species or custom populations

Expert support at every step of your project.

Unique DNBSEQ™ Sequencing Technology

BGI's plant and animal low pass whole genome sequencing services are typically executed with proprietary DNBSEQ™ sequencing technology platforms, for great sequencing data at some of the lowest costs in the industry. DNBSEQ™ offers advantages in terms of lower amplification error rates and much lower duplication rates in WGS/WES applications. In addition, studies have shown the lower index hopping rate in DNBSEQ™ platforms.
