Open Cell Microbial Contaminants by High-throughput Sequencing

The quality assurance is becoming an increasingly important issue in various research settings. NGS (next-generation sequencing)-based contaminant detections offer promising diagnostics to assess the presence of contaminants. Because biological resources are frequently contaminated by multiple microorganisms, researchers need careful attention to intra- and interspecies sequence similarities. OpenContami ( investigates the origin of sequenced reads from user-uploaded BAM files and provides highly probable microbial contaminants present in the BAM files that may be contaminated by the laboratory reagents, sequencer carryovers, cross-contamination, etc.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
