Automated Annotation and Analysis
You are done sequencing - now, where are the genes and what do they do? Igenbio, Inc. automatically annotates and analyzes genomes, identifying the genes and RNAs, assigning functions to the identified proteins and RNAs, and link the functions to the network of pathways in the organism. Typically ERGO™ automated annotation results in 10% to 20% more successful function prediction than competing technologies.
Reviewing and curating the automated annotation results improves the accuracy, adds more functional predictions for unassigned genes and makes additional connections to ERGO™'s pathway database. Manual annotation by Igenbio's scientists is an excellent way to refine a metabolic model for an organism by identifying missing steps in critical biochemical pathways and generating the most accurate gene functions.
Igenbio's scientists using ERGO™ create complete metabolic reconstructions of microorganisms and work with customers analyzing the metabolic and non-metabolic pathways to discern organism physiology. Igenbio's scientists have designed growth media for fastidious growing intracellular plant and animal pathogens.
Using ERGO™, our scientists work with you to explore the genomic basis of unique physiology and shared physiology between microorganisms or between strains. High-resolution genome comparison identifies SNPs that affect species and strain differences. This is a powerful tool for improving production of bacterial strains and aiding bioprocess development.
Data-mining for target gene discovery
Finding unique genes for drug discovery or metabolic engineering targets is a critical start in any research project, since in silico analysis fast-tracks research and saves weeks or months of laboratory time. Data mining can also identify the genes that encode novel or useful functions in bioproduction patents.
