Based on number of factors including study design and budgets, you need to decide the approach to use in human microbiome studies. Often this choice is between the low-cost microbial profiling (amplicon/16S sequencing) and the high-cost approach of complete metagenome sequencing (shotgun metagenomics).
BaseClear has now launched a new solution that combines the benefits of both approaches. With our new shallow shotgun sequencing service, we offer a thoroughly tested workflow for cost-efficient species-level community profiling and functional analysis for human microbiome studies. With a limited budget it is now possible to answer questions linking the microbiome to human health and disease, including:
