BaseClear BiaNomics is a specialized Business Unit of BaseClear. This Business Unit offers significant expertise, experience and capabilities in microbial genomics to assist you with your microbiological research and development projects. Analysis of a microorganism’s genome, transcriptome and its systems biology are currently essential means for understanding microorganisms, their behaviour under specific conditions, and optimizing their production. Practical applications include the development of microorganisms such as probiotics and other food ingredients, and production strain optimization for products like enzymes, antibiotics and vaccines.


BaseClear has many years of experience in the genomics of microorganisms, with technologies like microbial profiling, (meta)genome sequencing and bioinformatics analysis. We have sequenced and assembled thousands of genomes including those of bacteria, fungi, yeast, algae and viruses. We have a broad range of the latest technologies available, from whole genome sequencing to transcriptome and gene-function analysis. Our automated robotic instruments allow the preparation and screening of samples in a high-throughput manner. Our bioinformatics team can solve a wide range of genomics questions, from assembly and comparative genomics to metagenomics and expression analysis, as well as custom analyses. This enables us to deliver outstanding results that fully answer your research questions.

Using our high-throughput equipment, we can screen large numbers of microbial samples for the presence of novel genes or biomolecules. Additionally, we offer a number of possibilities for genome analysis of pathogens, which is essential for the development of new biomarkers and vaccines. Our microbiome profiling possibilities enable the analysis of the gut or skin microbiome and can help determine the effect of the probiotics or biomarkers being developed. Moreover, if you have a research question about microorganisms that does not align well with our current services, you can always contact us and ask about the possibilities!

Microbial genome analysis


The BaseClear BiaNomics team includes a number of talented scientists with an excellent molecular microbiology background. They will take time to gain insight into your objectives and needs and come up with specific advice that will be tailored to your problems and challenges. BaseClear BiaNomics offers full solutions that cover the complete process from DNA extraction and genome sequencing to data processing, analysis and interpretation. During the implementation of the project, our product specialists can advise you regarding sample preparation and the best technical approach to use.
