PROTOCOLS AND PIPELINES
BMP Standard Protocols
The DNA extraction and purification is one of the most important step while carrying a microbiome study. Here we provide the most up to date protocols to increase data confidence and reproducibility.
DNA SEQUENCING TECHNOLOGIES AND APPLICATIONS
Advances in next-generation sequencing technologies allow comparative analyses of the taxonomical and functional diversity of whole microbial communities, at far greater depths than ever before. Here, we outline the main technologies applied for microbiome studies, providing the users with the most appropriate platform for each application.
BIOINFORMATICS - DATA ANALYZES
Since the introduction of next-generationsequencing (NGS) scientists have generated an unprecedented amount of genomic information. However, our ability to comprehensively analyze this huge amount of data is still limited, which makes bioinformatics one of the main bottlenecks in microbiome studies. Here, we provide a set of user-friendly pipelines for microbiome data analyzes.
