Perhaps you are investigating the microbiome in an animal where there is no microbiome reference material, or you would like to have a reference that is specific for your cohort this involves uncovering new microbiomes. Especially in domesticated animals, the microbiome may differ substantially between facilities.
Clinical Microbiomics has extensive experience in uncovering microbiome diversity and offer de-novo discovery of microbiome diversity from shotgun microbiome data, including de-novo construction of gene catalogues (Qin et al., 2010, Hildebrand et al., 2012, Li et al., 2014, Xiao et al., 2015), and identification, annotation and profiling of metagenomic species (Nielsen et al., 2014, Jeraldo et al., 2016, Nissen et al., 2019). We have extensive experience in uncovering microbiome diversity, and for many domesticated animals we have data that may reduce the need for new cohort specific data.
