Microbial Whole Genome Analysis (WG)
With the onset of NGS technologies, researchers are now able to get a high-resolution, base-by-base view of the genome of species. This full-length genomic dataset empower researchers to capture genetic variations and make genetic discoveries that otherwise may be missed. We perform de novo microbial genome sequencing using the most advanced sequencing platforms, Illumina and PacBio, generating large volumes of data to support the discovery of novel genomes. Leveraging our unique bioinformatics capabilities – carefully optimized pipelines, highly curated databases, web-based analysis tools and microbiology based expertise – we provide best in class genome assembly, annotation and comparative genome analysis between related species.

Comparative Genomics Analysis (CG)
Comparative Genomics (CG) analysis is an advanced field of study that compares and analyzes genomes of different organisms at the nucleotide sequence level. With the onset of NGS technologies, time and cost of sequencing a genome has been greatly reduced, allowing the research community to quickly complete genome sequences of various strains. However, the genome sequence is only part of the story, as unknown functions and evolutionary characteristics of genes need to be determined. Comparing gene sequences of a novel strain to that of others available on various databases (NCBI, EzBioCloud) is the best method for researchers to gain further insight into their microbial strains.

- Statistical genome properties.
Genomic properties such as genome size, GC content, the number of CDS, mean length of CDS and mean length of intergenic regions are compared to elucidate possible correlations.
- Species Identification.
UPGMA dendrograms are inferred from the overall genome related indices such as OrthoANI and Tetra Nucleotide frequencies.
- Detecting Lateral Gene Transfer.
BLASTP (RBH: Reciprocal Best Hit) and BLASTN (ORF independent) methods are used to create Pairwise Ortholog Matrices displayed in color heat maps representing ortholog similarity.
- Various pan-genome analysis.
Genomes of interest, the pan-genome and the core-genomes can be visualized and selected for secondary analysis — pathway enrichment analysis using the KEGG/Egg-NOG/SEED databases, statistical significance tests, Venn diagram of ortholog sharedness.
- Species Identification
The first step in comparative genomic analysis is to look at the phylogenetic relationship among strains in detail. CG provides dendrograms based on the overall genome related index including OrthoANI and the Tetra Nucleotide Analysis.
- Tracking Lateral Gene Transfer
The Pairwise Ortholog Matrix is generated by a complete calculation of the pairwise ortholog.
- Pan-genome Orthologous Groups
A Venn diagram provides POG sharedness in a pan-genome and is useful for gaining insight into how pan-genome ortholog genes are present differentially across the genomes in a pan-genome.
- Heat Map
Gene content (presence/absence) together with clustering data can be used to generate heat maps. In CG, UPGMA clustering is carried out on both genomes and POGs (genes).
- Statistical Biomarker Discovery
Pan-genome orthologous group (POG) refers to a group of ortholog genes that are identified from multiple genomes. The POG table is useful for biomarker discovery.
- Pathway Enrichment Analysis
Metabolic pathways that are only present in one group but not in another can easily be identified. KEGG database is used for this analysis.
