    Metagenomic Sequencing

    We apply our experience and scale to provide professional, fast and highly affordable metagenomic sequencing services utilizing whole genome shotgun sequencing. Contact us today with any questions or for a no obligation quote.

    Metagenomic Sequencing Introduction

    BGI's Metagenomic Sequencing service applies whole genome shotgun sequencing of DNA that is directly recovered and isolated from complex enivronmental or human sample types, including the gastrointestinal tract, soil and water.

    Metagenomic Sequencing not only provides information on species composition and abundance, but also on functional genes, gene differences between samples, metabolic pathways and provides a rich data resource for mining for bioactive products such as novel enzymes and other biocatalysts. 

    Our sequencing scale and proprietary technology ensures highly competitive pricing while our extensive experience across a vast range of metagenomics projects ensures our experts are able to provide custom bioinformatics solutions that can help elucidate the relationship between host-associated microbial communities and host phenotype.

    Unique DNBSEQ™ Sequencing Technology

    BGI's Metagenomic 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™ is a proprietary sequencing technology, first developed by BGI's Complete Genomics subsidiary in Silicon Valley and offers advantages in terms of lower amplification error rates and much lower duplication rates in WGS/WES applications. In addition, studies have shown the index hopping rate in DNBSEQ™ platforms to be much lower when compared to that of other platforms.
