Biomarker Discovery

We study the link between the microbiome and chronic diseases using our proprietary Precision Microbiome Discovery Platform to identify microbes and/or functions that play key roles in health and diseases at an unprecedented accuracy and precision. Our pipeline significantly shortens the time for discovery and development of candidate biomarkers for microbiota-based therapeutics and companion diagnostics for microbiome-related diseases. We offer collaborative research and development services to identify new therapeutic targets and/or bio-markers for companion diagnostics by co-researching on various areas of research.

Shotgun Microbiome Profiling

When you need higher resolution taxonomic profiling of metagenomic communities, rely on EzBioClouds Shotgun-based MTP using mWGS data.

Shotgun-based MTP can achieve high sequence coverage, allowing very rare bacterial species to be identified. It usually generates longer contigs as well, which can be analyzed by gene prediction software, to assign gene functionality to them. Identify unique clade-specific marker genes for taxonomic analysis in an easy to follow pipeline. Achieve better accuracy in predicting genes that contribute to antimicrobial resistance (AMR), which consists of antibiotic genes in both pathogenic and non-pathogenic species.

Amplicon Bioinformatics

At EzBiome we created the worlds best 16S rRNA amplicon analysis pipeline EzBioCloud MTP. Easy to use and powerful at the same time our platform will help you get the most out of your data.

Microbiome Taxonomic Profiling (MTP) is a cloud-based application for microbial community profiling. Knowing what microbiota are present in a particular sample, has yielded valuable insight into how various species interact with each other and with their environment. This has also yielded insight into the profound effects the human microbiome has on our health and wellness. Microbiome or metagenomic analysis is used to characterize what microbial species are present in a given environment, as well as to measure their relative abundance in a given sample.

High throughput DNA sequencing of the 16S rRNA gene is still the gold standard for objectively surveying the bacterial population and measuring the relative abundance of its components. MTP analysis on EzBioCloud uses our extensive, curated, and taxonomically validated database and optimized in-house pipeline. This lets you easily, and most accurately characterize your samples, usually down to the species level, and visually compare them. Also, with our knowledge of the 16S gene copy number, you can correct and normalize to get more accurate abundance estimates. Our curated and frequently updated genome database also makes functional biomarker predictions from the 16S data more accurate. Learn More

Bacterial Genomics And Comparative Genomics

Full-length genomic analysis service for strain isolates. Results provide genetic information and functional/evolutionary characteristics of the genes through comparison to related species.

EzBiome’s WG service is perfect for studying pathogenicity, antibiotics resistance, microbiome-related functions, diagnostic biomarker discovery, and secondary metabolism. Or you can take your analysis to the next level with comparative genomics, where you select several genomes and go beyond simple discovery.

All the open reading frames (ORFs) and RNA and their detailed information annotated in the analysis pipeline are viewed through an easy to use genome browser. You’ll receive publication-ready genome maps and alignments at the click of a button. A Pairwise Ortholog Matrix is generated by a complete calculation of the pairwise ortholog detection within a data set. Two algorithms for ortholog detection methods, namely Reciprocal Best Hit (RBH) and ORF-independents, are used to generate the tables. A Venn diagram provides Pan-genome orthologous groups (POG) sharedness in a pan-genome and is useful for gaining insight into how pan-genome ortholog genes are present differentially across the genomes in a pan-genome. Conduct pathway enrichment analysis to uncover metabolic pathways that are only present in one group but not in another utilizing a KEGG database.
