Microbial Whole Genome Sequencing

Microbial whole genome sequencing is important for precise microbial identification, the generation of complete reference genomes (de novo sequencing), comparative genomic studies (re-sequencing), and genomic exploitation.

Comparative genomic studies can identify individual genetic variations and large scale structural variations within a population for which a reference genome is available. Evolutionary characteristics and phylogenetic relationships can be hence inferred.

Microbial whole genome sequencing provides the possibility of gene finding and annotation. After multiple genes are explained, novel biochemical pathways that may be beneficial for medicine and biotechnology will likely be identified.
