Plasmid Identification - Full Length Plasmid Sequencing
Plasmid-mediated horizontal gene transfer is considered a major driving force for rapid bacterial adaptation and diversification.
Identification of unknown or known plasmids was once difficult due to repeat regions. CD Genomics employs next generation sequencing
(NGS) or long-read sequencing technology to accurately obtain all genomic knowledge of plasmid. Coupled with powerful bioinformatics
algorithms and tools, we can help you identify antibiotic resistance genes (ARGs), mobile genetic elements and any other genes of interest.
Standardized laboratory methods and quality assurance processes.
Advanced genomics solutions and genome-based analysis.
Stand at the frontiers of microbial genomics and bioinformatics analyses.
Next-generation sequencing and long-read sequencing platforms.

Introduction to our plasmid identification service
Plasmids are small and circular pieces of DNA presenting in bacteria (like Escherichia coli) and other organisms. It can replicate independently in host
genome. Plasmids are important vehicles for microbial populations to adapt rapidly to environmental changes. Plasmid-mediated gene transfer is
crucial in the dissemination of ARGs. Plasmids are transmissible between host cells, leading to the quick spread of their accessory genes within a
bacterial community. The Food Safety Authority (EFSA or FDA) requires critical plasmid information in food or feed industry, mainly because of the
transmission of antibiotic resistance traits. CD Genomics has developed a unique and sequencing-based platform to help researchers quickly identify
and characterize plasmids.
NGS and long-read sequencing technologies offer a strong potential fo
