Quantitative metagenomics

Whole Genome Sequencing

Analysing and modeling complex microbiome diversity and composition

Our team ensures optimal data quality and cost efficiency. An expertise in bioinformatics and statistics with recognized and innovative data mining of multivariate and heterogeneous datasets.

We can generate data through our ISO9001 sequencing platform or you can provide your own !

The high-throughput DNA sequencing of bacteria living in the digestive tract enables the stratification of individuals and the characterization of their microbiome.
