Water Microbiome Analysis

To better understand microbial dynamics, we characterized and compared the bacterial community of water using rRNA surveys, metagenomics, metabolomics, proteomics, which are good tools to elucidate composition of microbial communities residing in various aquatic environments.

Water Microbiota Analysis

Sewage Microbiome Analysis

Sewage contains diverse microbes, and regular microbiological screening has become key factor to monitoring the wastewater treatment and protecting environmental health.

Freshwater lake Microbiome Analysis

Freshwater lakes in diverse regions provide indispensable water resources for humans. The microbial communities in freshwater lake ecosystem play a central role in global environmental and public health perspectives.

Rainwater Microbiome Analysis

Excessive rainfall is a critical origin to historical waterborne disease outbreaks owing to mobilization and transport of bacterial pathogens. Hence, it is significant to explore the impact of rainfall carrying the live microbial on the quality of freshwater reservoirs in terms of changes in the abundance of pathogens, the microbial community composition and diversity.

Drinking water Microbiome Analysis

Understanding and evaluating major bacteriological changes in drinking water treatment and distribution systems is of primary importance for human health. Advancement in 'omics' technologies   promise to reveal new insights into drinking water microbiomes and improve design of engineering interventions and monitoring tools to lower public health risk.

Technical Platforms

With our next-generation sequencing (NGS) technology, PacBio SMRT sequencing, and Nanopore sequencing platforms, we have the tool to identify, quantify and analysis various aquatic environmental microbiota. With this high-throughput technology we can perform complete metagenomics studies capable of surveying the genomes of entire communities, including those of unculturable organisms.
