MicrobioSeq Division Releases Viral Metagenomics Services to Study Viruses

MicrobioSeq represents the microbial genomics division of CD Genomics headquartered in New York, USA. CD Genomics is a genomics service company with a good reputation in providing reliable sequencing, genotyping, microarray, and bioinformatics services. The product manager has recently announced viral metagenomics services, which can help scientists study viruses efficiently and easily by utilizing the next-generation sequencing technology, coupled with comprehensive bioinformatics analysis.


Viral metagenomics is the application of environmental genomics in viruses, which requires a combination of innovative technologies such as virus manipulation, random PCR, next-generation sequencing (NGS), and long-read sequencing. Commonly used sequencing platforms for viral metagenomics include Illumina HiSeq/MiSeq, PacBio RS II, and Nanopore SMRT instruments. The technical route includes sample preparation, virus particle enrichment, DNA library construction, sequencing and bioinformatics analysis.


“The efficiency of viral metagenomics and bioinformatics analysis has been greatly improved in recent years. Viral metagenomics surpasses traditional viral research for its ability to detect low-abundance viruses.” Said Chief Scientist of CD Genomics.


Viral metagenomics expands the current knowledge about virus-host interactions by revealing genes that may allow viruses to manipulate the host in unexpected ways. Discovering the inherent potential of viruses through viral metagenomics can help advance a wide range of disciplines including evolutionary biology, pathogen monitoring, and biotechnology. In addition, functional viral metagenomics can serve as a platform for discovering more useful enzymes. With the continuous improvement of viral gene annotation, the discovery of important enzymes will greatly increase.


What are the advantages of CD Genomics's viral metagenomics services?

  1. Almost all known and new viruses in the sample can be analyzed using high-throughput sequencing and random PCR.
  2. CD Genomics provides comprehensive information on the biodiversity, taxonomy, and function of viruses in the sample.
  3. The scientists here can systematically analyze and identify viruses which are too scattered or rare in the sample.


"Based on the rich experience of microbial genomics, CD Genomics has been further developed, and its mission is to accelerate the entire microbiome industry towards breakthrough discoveries. Through years of hard work, CD Genomics has become a leading supplier of viral metagenomics services for research institutions and biological companies." Said Marketing Manager of CD Genomics.
