Venom Genome Sequencing

Creative Proteomics has been providing researchers with accurate and affordable whole-genome sequencing services for many years. We combine the Illumina (short reading) and PacBio (long reading) platforms to provide different poisonous species (such as snakes, scorpions, frogs, venomous lizards, fire-bellied toads, snails, spiders, bees, ants, cone snails, jellyfish, etc.) with whole genome re-sequencing or de novo assembly sequencing services.


Whole genome sequencing.

For poisonous species with existing reference genomes, the whole genome resequencing provided by Creative Proteomics is to perform DNA sequencing of species with known genome sequences, and on this basis, complete individual or group analysis of poisonous species or their venom. Whole genome resequencing can detect a large amount of variation information through sequence alignment, including single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP), insertion deletion (InDel), structural variation (SV) and copy number variation (CNV), etc. Based on the detected variation, it can further study the species characteristics of animals and plants, population evolution issues, and locate target trait gene loci.

For poisonous species without a reference genome, the de novo sequencing we provide means that a certain poisonous species or venom can be sequenced without any reference sequence information, and the bioinformatics analysis method is used to splice and assemble to obtain the species's genomic sequence map.

Advantages of Genome Sequencing

  1. For poisonous species without a reference genome, draw a draft genome and obtain the reference sequence of the species to provide a data basis for subsequent studies of the species.
  2. Identify venom-related genes, and lay a foundation for exploring the origin and evolution of venom genes.
  3. Mining the variation information of venom-related functional genes, further studying the characteristics of poisonous species, population evolution issues, and locating target trait gene loci.
  4. Build a species database.
  5. Detect high-frequency, low-frequency, and even rare point mutations and structural variation information related to venom at the whole genome level.
  6. For individual samples, comprehensive genomic mutation profile information can be obtained.

Whole Genome Sequencing Workflow

The whole genome high-throughput sequencing service provided by Creative Proteomics, from DNA extraction, library construction and sequencing, to data analysis, has undergone scientific and meticulous design and strict quality control at every step to ensure high-quality research results. The general workflow for venom whole genome sequencing is outlined below.
