Microbial Genomics

\r\n Microbial Genomics- applies recombinant DNA, DNA sequencing methods, and bioinformatics to sequence, assemble, and analyze the function and structure of genomes in microbes. Genetics Otago is the largest center for advanced Genetics research in Australia. Focus on 7 main themes, which cover the full spectrum of genetics research. The Centre of Microbial and Plant Genetics (CMPG) was founded in 1953 discoverer of crossing-over sites in chromosomes of meiotic cells. A number of important scientific opportunities exist in genome analysis related to microbiology. Current genome projects, however, do not adequately represent the full range of microorganisms. A microbial genome program based on rational priorities is needed to make strategic decisions about the appropriation and distribution of funding and resources. OpGen filed plans with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission to sell 3.75 million shares in an initial public offering with the goal of securing up to $35.2 million. The Gaithersburg, Md.-based microbial genetics analysis company said it will use the money as working capital and to support increased sales and marketing efforts for its genetic tests for multidrug resistance organisms.

Microbial whole-genome sequencing is an important tool for mapping genomes of novel organisms, finishing genomes of known organisms, or comparing genomes across multiple samples. Sequencing the entire microbial genome is important for generating accurate reference genomes, for microbial identification, and other comparative genomic studies. De novo whole-genome sequencing involves assembling a genome without the use of a genomic reference and is often used to sequence novel microbial genomes.
