Whole genome sequencing (WGS) is carried out to obtain the sequence of the entire genome from any eukaryotic or prokaryotic organism. De novo sequencing refers to the sequencing of a target organism without prior knowledge of its genome, while resequencing uses a reference sequence from a similar organism that has previously been sequenced to aid with the downstream analysis.
Whole genome sequencing can be used to sequence the genomes of a broad range of organisms, from the smallest virus right up to the largest plant. WGS can be used to identify alleles or variations in a genome. This method of sequencing can be applied to a variety of projects, including the following:
Detection and identification of known and novel mutations using whole genome sequencing and resequencing
De novo sequencing and resequencing of multiple strains of microbes
De novo sequencing and resequencing of plant and crop genomes that are of commercial and research interest
Detection and characterisation of foreign DNA from infected plants and animals, or from clinical samples
What We Do?
Additionally, we can provide bioinformatics services to suit your requirements, capabilities and budget. These services include analysis and screening of data quality, complete assembly of genomes, and annotation of genes.
