Fungal Whole-Genome De Novo Sequencing

In addition to supporting the de novo assembly of bacterial genomes, CD Genomics also offers fungal whole-genome de novo sequencing services based on advanced long-read sequencing technologies. Our services enable the advanced assembly of fungi and provide powerful support for fungal research, which can be used to predict important genes and proteins of fungi to understand their functions and possible mechanisms.

De Novo Assembly of Fungal Genomes

Fungus Sporothrix schenckii, the causative agent of sporotrichosis, especially common in florists and gardeners.

Fungi are diverse and differ in morphology, physiology, and pathogenicity. In order to study and reveal the origins of the diversities in these traits, molecular genetic studies are needed. Identification of species and pathogenicity levels of fungi is crucial for fungi research, such as resolving complex phylogeny of fungi. The genomic data can facilitate the understanding of their impact on the environment and the host-pathogen interactions. In addition, fungi are closely related to human life. Fungal genomic data is also important for industrial applications. With advances in sequencing technologies, more accurate, longer, and more affordable long reads are available. De novo genome assembly based on long reads continues to evolve rapidly and has been a powerful method to assemble complex microbial genomes, including fungal genomes.

Analysis Contents

Analysis of fungal genome information at different levels of fineness, deciphering the development of fungi and exploring their potential value. Our analysis consists of two main parts: standard analysis and advanced analysis. Specific analytical services are as follows, but are not limited to,

  • Standard analysis
    -Data quality control.
    -Genome assembly and evaluation of assembly results.
    -Genome component analysis.
    -Gene functional annotation.
  • Advanced analysis
    -Gene family construction.
    -Phylogenetic analysis.
    -Gene synteny analysis.
    -Pathogen-host interaction (PHI) database annotation.
    -CAZy database annotation.
    -Fungal virulence factor (DFVF) analysis.
    -Identification of novel secondary metabolite biosynthesis (SMB) genes.

Fungal species are large and diverse, with relatively simple genomes. The complete assembly and accurate annotation of fungal genomes will provide the basis for fungal diversity and evolution studies, host-fungal interaction mechanisms, and antifungal drug development. CD Genomics provides end-to-end and customized services. Based on the advanced platform and years of experience in microbial de novo sequencing services, we provide you with high-quality data, and reliable and cutting-edge bioinformatics analysis.
