Metatranscriptomic Service Capture the activity of the gut microbiome with gene expression profiling
The metatranscriptome represents an entire microbial community’s gene expression profile, providing a complete picture of a sample’s microbial functions and expression levels. This profile provides valuable information about the microbial activity, community dynamics and interaction between the microbes and the host.
The analysis of microbial expression is challenging due to cumbersome extraction, the overwhelming presence of ribosomal RNA and the need for complex bioinformatic analysis.
Diversigen’s scientists developed the metatranscriptomic service to deliver valuable insights into microbial activity with gene expression profiles and taxonomic information.
- Comprehensive analysis, including gene expression profiles, taxonomic profiles and diversity metrics.
- Curated database containing over 190,000 genomes and 100 million unique genes
- Optimized RNA extraction of stool with enhanced microbial mRNA recovery
Robust and reproducible gene expression profiles of stool at 25 M reads
Optimized sample processing ensures microbial mRNA recovery to generate reproducible gene expression profiles at an average 25 M read depth.
Robust and reproducible identification of KEGG Orthology pathways
COG functional groups in stool
Taxonomic and gene expression profiles provide valuable insights into the gut microbiota
By accurately annotating sequences based on a curated functional and taxonomic database, our metatranscriptomic service provides heat maps of gene expression profiles that allow for:
- Understanding temporal changes in microbial gene expression
- Gaining insight into disease onset, aging and therapeutic intervention
- Discovering microbe-host interactions and microbial community dynamics
