16S rRNA metagenomics: increasing efficiency by blocking amplification of contaminating sequences from a eukaryotic host
16S rRNA sequencing is the most common approach used to identify microbes without the need to sequence entire genome. It is fast, cost-effective and flexible; however the method suffers some inefficiencies.

IGATech is keeping active in the human genomics field. After the D.NAMICA project in which we applied Whole Exome Sequencing to better understand the genetic characteristics of patients suffering dilatative cardiomyopathy, hepatocellular carcinoma and spinal muscular atrophy, we are moving to the next level by implementing Whole Genome Sequencing to redefine the diagnosis in breast cancer and in patients with behavioral, cognitive and developmental disorders.
