Metagenomics is the study of genetic material recovered directly from environment samples. Agiomix offers bioinformatics service for the analysis of 16S/18S/ITS metagenomics data to facilitate the better understanding of the microbial community in human microbiome, soil, water and environment samples. Bioinformatics analysis make it possible to discover the species abundance and diversity of the microbial community.
Diverse microbial communities have significant roles in the human, animal and environment. However, some microbes are difficult to culture, so NGS technology and bioinformatics have been combined into shotgun metagenomics and providing meaningful insight to understand the microbial community. Agiomix offers bioinformatics service for the analysis of shotgun metagenomics data to understanding the functions of the genes and characterizing of microbial communities. This study helps to better understanding of the uncultured bacteria, archaea and virus in the human microbiome and environment samples.
Comparative Microbial Genomics
The advent of NGS technology and bioinformatics analysis is now rapid, cheap and effective technique for investigating microbes, and there are thousands of microbial genome sequences available in the databases for comparative analysis. Comparative microbial genome analysis is increasingly being performed by researcher, clinician and in public health labs. Agiomix offers comparative microbial genomics service for identifying commonly shared genes or unique genes, function of the genes and structural rearrangement of the genes.
