Sequencing & Metagenomics

Sequencing and Metagenomics are powerful Molecular Biology and Genomics techniques to study DNA and RNA samples, particularly in complex microbial communities.

Sequencing and Metagenomics of DNA and RNA play crucial roles in understanding microbial communities’ genetic diversity, functional capabilities, and dynamics. These techniques have revolutionized our ability to study complex microbial ecosystems and have wide-ranging applications in various fields, including Environmental Science, Biotechnology, and Medicine.

What is DNA Sequencing?

DNA Sequencing is the process of determining the precise order of nucleotides (A, T, G, C) within a DNA molecule. It provides valuable information about an organism or sample’s genetic composition and structure. There are several methods of DNA sequencing, including Sanger Sequencing, Illumina Sequencing (also known as Next-Generation Sequencing or NGS), and third-generation sequencing technologies like PacBio and Oxford Nanopore sequencing.

In the context of Metagenomics, DNA sequencing allows for the study of the collective genetic material of an entire microbial community present in a sample. It involves extracting DNA from the sample, constructing sequencing libraries, and then performing high-throughput sequencing to generate millions to billions of short DNA sequences, called reads. These reads can then be assembled and analyzed to identify the microbial species present, assess their functional capabilities, and understand their interactions within the community.

What is RNA Sequencing?

RNA Sequencing, or RNA-Seq, is a technique used to determine the presence and quantity of RNA molecules in a biological sample. It provides insights into gene expression patterns, alternative splicing events, and RNA processing. RNA-Seq can be applied to both bulk RNA (total RNA from a population of cells) and single-cell RNA.

Meta transcriptomics is a subset of metagenomics that focuses on the sequencing and analysis of RNA molecules from microbial communities. By studying the transcriptome of a community, researchers can gain insights into the active genes, metabolic pathways, and functional activities of the microorganisms in the sample. This information helps to understand the dynamic behavior and functional potential of the microbial community under different conditions.

Sequencing and Metagenomics

What is Metagenomics?

Metagenomics is a field of study that involves the analysis of genetic material recovered directly from environmental samples, such as soil, water, or the human gut. It provides a holistic view of the genetic diversity within a microbial community and allows for the exploration of previously uncharacterized or uncultivable microorganisms.

Metagenomics typically involves the isolation of DNA or RNA from a sample, followed by sequencing and bioinformatics analysis. DNA metagenomics focuses on the study of the community’s genomic content, while RNA Metagenomics (Meta transcriptomics) focuses on the community’s expression patterns and functional activities.

Metagenomics has numerous applications, including the discovery of novel genes and enzymes, analysis of microbial diversity and ecology, identification of potential pathogens, and understanding of the role of microbiota in various environments, including human health and disease.

Why test at AMMAGENOMICS?

We do Sequencing from any biological samples with our novel high-quality Nucleic Acid Extraction Kits free from PCR inhibitors. We also have direct PCR methods to overcome extraction bias, especially in sequencing samples involving gram-positive bacteria, which are resistant to lysis.

The RNA-Extraction-Free Direct RT-PCR methods also avoid extraction and PCR bias giving accurate gene expression results which are not always possible by binding with a silica matrix. We are skilled in 16s and 18s Metagenomics and other DNA/RNA Sequencing Assays including Microbiome Testing.

We do both PCR-based testing and sequencing for microbiota. The PCR method is a quick turnaround. The sequencing method is a detailed method but it takes longer time and is a little more expensive. In sequencing, we do all types of sequencing like Microbiota sequencing, Gene-sequencing, and Whole-gene sequencing based on your requirement.
