Microsynth’s state-of-the-art de novo bacterial genome sequencing service is based on long-read sequencing technology. It will reconstitute the sequence of your bacterial genome using a sophisticated bioinformatic pipeline developed by Microsynth that recreates the genome sequence including annotation from the raw sequencing reads. The service is available for samples in tubes.

Technical Questions

How can I open/view the data in certain files (eg. tsv, gbk)?

If you are working on Windows you may want to switch on viewing of file name extensions (In File Explorer under View, in the Show/hide group, select the File name extensions check box). For instance tab separated value files (.tsv) may be opened in any text editor or by drag and drop in an open but empty Excel table. Fasta (.fasta) and genbank (.gbk) files may be opened in a text editor or by specialized software.
