Microbiome studies are very heterogeneous in terms of environment types (e.g. stool, biopsies, skin, food, marine, soil). Sampling, storage, DNA/RNA extraction and sequencing protocols often differ between and even within academic labs depending on sample type, study and technical staff. SeqBiome has a deep understanding of all these factors, along with a tried-and-tested approaches to mitigate known and unknown biases, which is crucial for gaining accurate and robust analysis outcomes. We follow publishable laboratory practice and use extraction methods optimised to sample type, include controls to exclude contaminating microbes, and optimise sequencing coverage to ensure you only pay for what is needed. We can also provide advice on efficient data collection, storage, and transportation for sequencing.
