Virome Sequencing Service for Investigating Gut Microbiota

GutFlora Omics Platform belongs to Creative Proteomics. With more than 10 years of experience in providing advanced multi-omics services, the GutFlora Omics Platform offers services and support to customers through comprehensive intestinal flora research solutions. GutFlora Omics Platform recently announced the launch of virome sequencing service to better study gut microbiota.

The gut microbiome includes a huge number of bacteria, archaea, fungi, and enteroviruses that colonize the gut. At present, most of the research on gut microbes focuses on the study of bacteria, and with the deepening of research, the number and types of enteroviruses and their impact on human health and disease have received more and more attention.

Research on enteroviruses has traditionally focused on the pathogenic mechanisms of classical pathogens and the host's immune response to pathogens. In recent years, the analysis of viral nucleic acid sequences in the intestine by high-throughput sequencing technology has revealed a dynamic and diverse enterovirome. In addition to known enteroviral pathogens, many new symbiotic viruses have been discovered, including bacteriophages that infect bacteria, viruses that infect eukaryotic cells, and endogenous retroviral elements that have integrated into the host genome.

“Multiple studies have separately reported an association between the enterovirome and disease. Viruses can directly or indirectly regulate prokaryotic growth and host gene expression in the gut, playing a role in transboundary regulation. Therefore, the complex interaction mechanism between enteroviruses and other gut microbes and the host is considered to be an important factor affecting and intervening in various diseases such as intestinal infectious diseases, inflammatory bowel diseases and intestinal tumors,” said a senior scientist at Creative Proteomics.

“Along with the advances in high-throughput and deep sequencing technology, our GutFlora Omics Platform is capable of characterizing virome richness and stability, gene functions, and association with disease phenotypes, which also helps to understand the richness of the virome and the role viruses play within complex microbial communities,” he added.

What are the advantages of the virome sequencing service offered by Creative Proteomics?

  • All types of viruses (ssDNA viruses, dsDNA viruses, ssRNA viruses, dsRNA viruses, retroviruses, etc.)
  • Highly sensitive and accurate
  • A broad reading range
  • Cost-efficient and fast turnaround time
  • Bioinformatics support
  • Specialized in gut microbiota analyses
