Powerful analysis platform
Our microbiome analysis combines leading technology and research
Our world-leading proprietary analysis platform allows new discoveries through comprehensive and precise measurement of the human gut microbiome. It uses one of the most accurate genome-based metagenomic profiling algorithms and our expertly curated proprietary reference database to give superior resolution for identifying microorganisms and their functions.
Our growing database of microbial genomes is quality-controlled for genome completeness and taxonomic accuracy. Using the most scientifically-advanced microbial taxonomy (the Genome Taxonomy Database), our world-leading database is regularly updated with new genomes to improve species identification from samples.
By combining our advanced bioinformatic analysis with our expanding database of known and novel species, we have exceptional ability to achieve accurate species and functional profiles. Our process includes placing sequencing reads into genomic context for high-resolution species-specific and sample-wide gene profiles and metabolic-pathway analysis.
