MicroTrek utilizes our expertise in DNA purification from diverse sample types as a starting point to make high quality libraries for next generation sequencing. We process samples by isolating DNA, amplifying universal regions of microbial DNA, and then sequence that DNA to identify microorganisms (microbes) present in the sample.
As a basic service, we provide identification of microbes (bacteria and eukaryotes) present and a measure of their abundance. Our proprietary bioinformatics pipeline results in high confidence identification of all known taxa present and we display these results in an easy to understand graphic user interface.
We can also translate this information into a specialized pattern and mapping output for clients interested in customized output.
