  • Category: Metabarcoding
  • Coordinator: Cyril Noël
  • Project example: ROME


Metabarcoding is the large-scale taxonomic identification of complex environmental samples via analysis of DNA sequences for short regions or complete sequences of a gene marker using either Illumina sequencing or long-read sequencing technologies (e.g Nanopore, PacBio). This approach allows the characterization of biodiversity using DNA from an environmental sample, for example water, soil or faeces.

SeBiMER's expertise for this approach is both technical with the development of the SAMBA workflow allowing the automated analysis of metabarcoding data, and scientific expertise especially in the design of the experimental plan, the statistical and biological analyses and interpretation of the data.
