Metagenomics entails the genomic study of the whole micro-flora and micro-fauna of a well-defined environment such as animal guts, bioreactors, soil, water, ...

This new and promising research approach relies upon the latest developments of Next Gen Sequencing technologies and instrumentations.

It is thought that metagenomics has the potential to fundamentally revolutionize our understanding of the microbial world and give birth to very practical and impactful applications touching fields such as medicine, agriculture, bioenergy, soil bioremediation and many others.

Progenus offers a seamless service for metagenomics studies from sequencing to automatic genomes annotation and more specifically on species identification and species content quantification.
