Whole genome sequencing is the most comprehensive method for analyzing the genome. Genomic information has been instrumental in identifying inherited disorders, characterizing the mutations that drive cancer progression, and tracking disease outbreaks. The recent increase in sequencing output allows to run whole genome sequencing at optimal coverage and minimal prices, making whole-genome sequencing a powerful tool for genomics research.
While whole-genome sequencing is commonly associated with sequencing human genomes, the scalable, flexible nature of next-generation sequencing (NGS) technology makes it equally useful for sequencing any species, such as agriculturally important livestock, plants, or disease-related microbes.
On top of the sequencing of your samples, NXT-Dx can also assist in the subsequent analysis of the resulting data such as variant calling.
Highlights of this service:
- Provide a high-resolution, base-by-base view of the genome
- Capture both large and small variants that might otherwise be missed
- Identifiy potential causative variants for further follow-on studies of gene expression and regulation mechanisms
- Deliver large volumes of data in a short amount of time to support assembly of novel genomes
