Metatranscriptomic Services 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 Services to deliver valuable insights into microbial activity with gene expression profiles and taxonomic information.

Features:

  • 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.

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 Services 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
