Application Note: Whole Genome Sequencing of Microbial Communities for Scaling Microbiome and Metagenomic Studies
22 October 2018

A workflow utilizing the Labcyte® Echo® 525 Liquid Handler can provide the solution to cost-effectively scale whole genome sequencing (WGS) of microbiomes to meet the demands of this new era of microbiome research. This application note demonstrates how the Echo 525 Liquid Handler can be used to miniaturize WGS of microbial communities. Raw data can be processed, analyzed, and ready for interpretation within the hour, by utilizing CosmosID’s best-in-class microbiome bioinformatics platform.
