CD Genomics is a world-leading genomics services company that continues to innovate in sequencing services for the genomics industry as well as genotyping, library construction, bioinformatics, microarrays, mutagenesis analysis, and more. Chloroplast DNA (cpDNA) plays an important role in revealing the origin of species, biological evolution, and kinship between different species. CD Genomics is pleased to offer the Chloroplast DNA (cpDNA) Sequencing service that has important applications in evolutionary biology research and forensic science.
In addition to cytosolic inheritance, cytoplasmic inheritance is also an important area of research within cells of higher organisms. The major carriers of genetic materials in the cytoplasm are mitochondria and chloroplasts. By using high-throughput sequencing technology to sequence and assemble the mitochondrial genomes of animals and plants and chloroplast genomes of plants, CD Genomics can break through the experimental barriers of traditional mt/cpDNA isolation and purification, and directly obtain mitochondrial/chloroplast genomes by using the total tissue DNA in order to deeply analyze sequence information and obtain information on species classification, phylogeny, and geographic genealogy genetics through comparative genome analysis.
Chloroplasts are the organelles of green plants that carry out photosynthesis and are essential not only for plant life, but for all life on Earth. Similar to mitochondria, chloroplasts have their own set of DNA and contain about 130 genes that are involved in photosynthesis and other important metabolic processes. Chloroplast genomes show considerable variation within and among species, providing insights into phylogenetic and evolutionary adaptations. Chloroplasts were involved in many other functions, including fatty acid synthesis, multiple amino acid synthesis, and immune responses in plants.
Chloroplast DNA (cpDNA) sequencing is a high-throughput sequencing of plant chloroplast genomes that employs the Illumina and PacBio platforms for in-depth sequence analysis. Comparative genomic analysis is used to obtain information on species classification, phylogeny, geographic genealogy, and forensics, thus revealing its important role in the origin of species, biological evolution and genetic relationships between different species.
Key advantages and features of CD Genomics’s cpDNA sequencing service:
1. Customer-oriented: appropriate sequencing solutions are adopted according to different needs
2. Strict experimental system: from DNA extraction and quality control, to library construction and sequencing, strict experimental procedures to ensure high data accuracy
3. Strong analysis team: a strong bioinformatics team provides personalized bioinformatics services in addition to standard bioinformatics services
“CD Genomics offers a cost-effective protocol for cpDNA sequencing, including DNA preparation, chloroplast enrichment, sequencing, and help analyze the entire chloroplast genome from total DNA samples. We can tailor this pipeline to your research interests,” stated CD Genomics’s executive vice president.
“Our philosophy is to accelerate the development of the biotechnology industry towards breakthrough discoveries. For many years, CD Genomics has remained committed to providing comprehensive sequencing and analysis services to research institutions and biotechnology companies,” he further added.
