Whole Genome Sequencing


Applications

Whole genome sequencing has revolutionized our understanding of the genome and continues to be a preferred method for assessing genomic variation. Using whole genome sequencing, researchers can begin to understand the genetic mutations underpinning certain diseases, the genetics of evolution, identification of cancers, assemble de novo genomes, and many more applications.

Perform straightforward whole-genome de novo assembly to decode previously uncharacterized genomes, or resequence organisms with an available reference. Get comprehensive genome coverage and explore the full range of genetic variation to tackle any size genome from bacteria to large, complex plants and animals.

Benefits

  • Quickly generate high-quality de novo or reference genome assemblies

  • More complete assemblies spanning repetitive and complex regions resulting in longer scaffolds, lesser contigs and fewer gaps

  • Accurately annotate haplotypes in whole genome assemblies

  • Compare sequence reads with a reference database for variant calling of SNPs, insertions, deletions, inversions, and structural rearrangements of any size

  • Carry out genome-level comparative analysis, such as synteny and identification of horizontal gene transfers and orthologs
