16S rRNA Gene Sequencing and data analysis

Service description:

We will use our LoopSeq single molecule-counting long-read 16S Ribosomal DNA kit to sequence your microbiome samples to determine the type and relative abundance of bacterial and archaeal species. We can accept purified DNA from gut, skin, soil, marine or other sources.

Advantages:

  • Higher sensitivity than other 16s services as we interrogate the entire 16s molecule V1-V9  with our single molecule counting long-read technology

  • 40x lower error when compared to Illumina library prep

  • Cost-effective

  • Fast turnaround 

Region Coverage:

Full 16s molecule, all V1-V9 variable regions

Deliverables:

Our standard analysis includes CSV files with (1) Single molecule quantification of abundance based on Unique molecular Identifiers (UMI's), eliminating amplification biases, (2) Reference based taxonomic classification based on nine variable regions (V1-V9 data in 16S) and long-reads in Metagenomic sequencing, (3) OTU tables, (4) Rarefaction analysis, (5) RAD analysis, as well as pie chart visualizations of classification and quantification.(5) Raw data as FASTA and FASTQ files.

Turn Around Time: 4 weeks
