CosmosID and The BioCollective Offer a Whole Genome Shotgun Sequencing Based Comprehensive Microbiome Analysis Kit
CosmosID and The BioCollective today announced a new Comprehensive Microbiome Analysis Kit for in-depth, high-resolution identification and characterization of microorganisms found in the gut. This easy-to-use service will provide robust characterization of the gut microbiome, including presence of antibiotic resistance factors, based on next-generation shotgun sequencing.
Dr. Rita Colwell, founder of CosmosID, said, "We are very pleased to be partnering with The BioCollective on the White House National Microbiome Initiative to study microbiome associations with many diseases, such as Sickle Cell and Parkinson's, in a major microbiome research initiative. With this new comprehensive kit, researchers and individuals will be able to obtain a full understanding of their microbiomes from this high resolution analysis."
