16S/18S/ITS Gene Sequencing


Use these methods for identification, classification and quantitation of microbes within complex biological mixture such as environmental samples and gut samples (ex human gut microbiome).
 

Metagenomic
Sequencing


Use this method to comprehensively sample all the genes in all organisms present in a given complex sample. It provides information for functional analysis of all the genes through gene ontology and metabolic pathway analysis.
 

Metatranscriptomic Sequencing


Use this method to extract and analyze metagenomic mRNA (the metatranscriptome) which provides information on the regulation and expression profiles of complex communities.
 

Microbiome Analysis


Microbiome analysis is performed via 16S rRNA gene sequencing. 16S sequencing is commonly used for identification, classification and quantitation of microbes within complex biological mixture such as human gut microbiome samples.
