FAST AND INTUITIVE WORKFLOW
From your personal account you can directly upload your Illumina® FASTQ files.
Min. coverage recommended: 100k reads per sample - Min. sequencing length: 300 PE
Using a straightforward credit system, the application automatically runs all necessary steps, starting from denoising and quality assessment of raw Illumina® sequencing data, over characterization of the microbiome composition of each sample, to further user-interactive visualization and statistical analyses.
EPISEQ® 16S allows to perform microbiome time-series analysis to provide critical insights regarding potential trends changes into the structure and function of microbial communities over time.
A report is available once the analysis is complete. The report can be customized to include only the graphs and results you want to see included.
16S AMPLICON SEQUENCING is at the core of the analysis
Using well established QIIME (v1.9.1) pipeline (Caporaso et al. (2010)) EPISEQ® 16S determines the microbial composition of a sample based on the variable regions of the 16S rRNA gene. EPISEQ® 16S has been optimized for the V3-V4 variable region and covers the full diversity of bacteria and archaea (SILVA 138, 2019-12-16).
