This is us

In the field of computational microbial identification based on DNA sequence data, we provide integrated solutions for biotechnological, clinical, and environmental microbiology.
They are based on an unique combination of expertise in microbial systematics, bioinformatics, and corresponding industry-specific requirements.

The scope of our daily activities is based on three pillars:

  •  Up-to-date taxonomic Reference Data Sets (marker genes and genomes)
  •  Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) systems for molecular microbial identification
  •  Quality Management with a GxP focus to accommodate industrial needs

See below to learn more about us and the solutions we provide to improve your microbial identification based on DNA sequencing.
