Microbiome and Genome Expression Analysis Services and Pricing

The Host Microbe Systems Biology Core (HMSB Core) is housed within the Department of Medical Microbiology & Immunology in the School of Medicine at the University of California Davis.  We provide researchers with an easily accessible, one-stop solution for all of your microbiome and gene expression analysis.  Our comprehensive sequencing services make use of the latest next-generation sequencing technologies and a novel customized suite of open source software developed in-house by one of the HMSB Core Associate Directors, Jonathan Eisen, Ph.D.  The HMSB Core performs complete start-to-finish workflows from sample processing to data analysis, eliminating the need to submit samples and data to separate facilities. 

16S Analysis and Support:

Effective microbiome study requires tight coupling of molecular work with appropriate statistical analysis and experimental design. The HMSB Core staff has extensive experience in experimental design and analysis of both 16S-based microbial diversity surveys and metagenomic data. We have utilized this experience to develop a customized workflow that optimizes integration of experimental metadata with taxonomic and statistical analysis, and includes the use of Phylosift (http://phylosift.wordpress.com), an open-source analytical platform developed by the Associate Director, Dr. Eisen.

PhyloSift focuses on resolving the genetic structure of microbial communities at fine-scale (subspecies) resolution. Previous efforts in this area have either not employed phylogenetic approaches, or have not been able to achieve resolution below the genus level (>98% DNA sequence identity). The analytic approach taken by PhyloSift can be applied to bacteria, archaea, viruses, and eukarya.
