BG7 is a service providing you the complete solution for de novo bacterial genomes from sequencing to genome annotation.
We design the project for you, understanding your goals, choosing the best technologies, analyzing costs and turnaround times.
We sequence bacterial genomes with PacBio or with illumina depending on your goals
We use the best assembly pipeline for each sequencing technology and for each project
Annotation with BG7
BG7 is our method specifically designed for bacterial genome annotation of NGS data. During last years we have successfully annotated many bacterial genomes even unknown genomes without sequenced close genomes. BG7 method was published in PLOS ONE: http://dx.plos.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0049239
Especial annotation for genes of interest
We select the genes of your interest and do a specific annotation for them to provide you with a rich functional data for the genes in which your research is focused.
What sequencing technologies?
We provides bacterial genomes sequencing using illumina and Pacbio sequencing technologies.
Our BG7 method of bacterial genome annotation is equally valid for bacterial genomes sequenced with any NGS sequencing technology including illumina, Ion-Torrent, PacBio or Oxford Nanopore. BG7 can also be used for annotation of genome assemblies resulting from metagenomics sequencing approaches.
BG7 system for genome annotation of bacteria sequenced with Next-gen sequencing technologies
BG7 is a complete bacterial genome annotation system including exhaustive gene prediction integrated with rich functional annotation. It is specially designed for NGS data. All genes similar to any known gene from any organism can be detected. The system provides a complete genome annotation, even if the genome is fragmented in thousands of contigs.
Features of BG7 annotation system :
- Tolerant to NGS-specific errors
- It detects genes even if they are fragmented or have insertions, deletions or substitutions in their sequences
- ORF prediction based on the detection of similarity with Uniprot proteins
- Annotation customized to client specific goals: metabolic pathways, antibiotic resistance, vaccine development, virulence genes, secondary metabolite biosynthesis,...
