Genome Differences in Plain View
Comparing two or more genomes is fast and easy with Whole Genome Mapping (WGM) technology and advanced analysis tools. The maps allow you to see and compare genomic content with higher accuracy across the entire genome.
Even highly related organisms can be accurately analyzed to confirm the similarities and locate regions that are different (Figure 1). These differences can be challenging to detect due to complex genomic variation or mobile elements. Using in silico restriction maps in comparisons, the WGM technology can determine the presence or absence of annotated genes by discovering the regions displaying alignment of restriction patterns (Figure 2).
- Find genetic variation: insertions, deletions and other genetic modifications
- Track mobile elements including pathogenicity islands, phage and transposons
- Differentiate strains and genetic relatedness between multiple isolates
OpGen provides proprietary software called MapSolver™ to analyze the sequences and compare maps with a high level of accuracy. You can take advantage of Whole Genome Mapping and high definition analysis with a MapIt Service map analysis of your samples. Or you can bring the Argus Whole Genome Mapping System into your lab to process samples and analyze multiple-map comparison and cluster analysis.
