Services commonly provided by MIRRI’s partner organisations, e.g. supply, deposit or identification of microbial resources by gene sequencing, as wll as advanced services, e.g. genomics, screening of metabolites, phylogenetic analysis, consultancy, and up to 95 services.
For workflows/pipelines of services, please consult the MIRRI’s Application-specific Service Catalogue.
Denaturing Gel Gradient Electrophoresis (DGGE)
DNA amplification by PCR of a fragment from a region of interest (fixed size), followed by separation of the fragments in a gel electrophoresis with an increasing denaturing gradient. This method can detect single base changes/mutations in environmental samples
Molecular typing and phylogenetic analysis
Strain typing based on differences in the DNA sequence of the isolates or environmental samples. Used, for example, for strain typing/differentiation, for phylogenetic analysis or to study the microbial diversity of environmental samples. The service includes consultancy to define the most suitable method considering the type of sample or the taxonomic group of the strain of interest
