RNA Sequencing & Microbiota Research

Microbiota is widely present in all sorts of environments, including inner and surface of plants and animals. Microbiota is composed of bacteria, archaea, fungi, and viruses. Studies have found that microbiota is essential for ecological balance and the host's immune, hormonal, and metabolic homeostasis. Microbial transcriptomics is a subject that studies gene transcription and gene expression activity by profiling RNA transcripts in complex microbial communities. RNA/transcriptome sequencing is a key method for studying the activities of the microbiota, and has great potential for applications in industry as well as medical and health fields. For example, bacterial expression profiling has identified significant changes in the expression of metabolic pathways related to the pathogenesis of human microbiome disease. Microbial transcriptomics is also important for predicting resistance to specific antibiotics, exploring host-pathogen immune interactions, and tracking disease progression.

Accelerate Research and Practice in Microbiota

Based on multiple RNA sequencing platforms, CD Genomics provides comprehensive microbiota transcriptome research solutions. We can provide prokaryotic RNA sequencing, eukaryotic RNA sequencing, viral RNA sequencing, and meta-transcriptome sequencing. Illumina next-generation sequencing and long-read sequencing practiced on PacBio or Nanopore platforms can accurately and efficiently analyze the expression of microbial genes, interpret the functions and activities of microorganisms, and better understand how microorganisms interact with the environment and their host. In addition, our team of scientists and bioinformaticians can implement every step from experimental design to data analysis, helping you to realize a variety of valuable applications through microbial RNA sequencing.
