Amplicon Bioinformatics Pipeline

Our microbial diversity services include taxonomic analysis using our custom data analysis pipeline. The data analysis pipeline consists of two major stages, the denoising and chimera detection stage and the microbial diversity analysis stage, which are further broken up as follows:

Denoising and Chimera Checking

1. Quality Trimming

2. Denoising

3. Chimera Checking


Microbial Diversity Analysis

1. Quality Checking

2. FASTA Formatted Sequence/Quality File Generation

3. Sequence Clustering

4. Taxonomic Identification

5. Data Analysis
