Accelerate microbial breakthroughs

Microbial Genomics

Characterize un-culturable organisms. Discover entirely new viruses. Develop new strategies to control outbreaks. Monitor host-pathogen interactions.

Next-generation sequencing (NGS) is opening new doors in microbial genomics, revealing fresh insight into how microbes impact humans and the environment.

  • See how  NGS enables a broad range of microbial  studies. View Video.
  • Explore how Dr. Jennifer Gardy is using NGS to provide new clues to help prevent and control disease outbreaks. Read Article (PDF).
  • Learn how Dr. Ramunas Stepanauskas uses single-cell sequencing on Illumina systems to uncover hidden diversity and biogeographic variability in marine microorganisms. Read Case Study (PDF).

Through the power and high resolution of Illumina technology, you can now understand the genetic makeup of organisms that were previously impossible to study—helping you examine microbial biological functions, track genetic changes, rapidly respond to outbreaks, monitor food sources, and more.

See the bigger picture by examining the smallest details in the tiniest organisms with NGS. Learn more about how NGS can change your approach to microbiology.
