Raw data refers to the sequence of nucleotides on the isolated strands of RNA and is meaningless without the appropriate interpretive software. Microbiome raw RNA sequencing data needs to be run through proven bioinformatics pipeline before it could be used to identify the organisms, genes and enzymes. This effort can only be accomplished by a highly qualified microbial bioinformatics expert.  

Viome provides amazing value by sequencing all the RNA from your sample, and then running it through our advanced bioinformatics pipeline in order to annotate the transcripts, genes and enzymes that are being expressed, as well as identifying all organisms at all taxonomic levels. Viome uses the most comprehensive proprietary database of all known organisms. Viome customers receive fully annotated results & interpretation of those results along with actionable insights at an affordable price.
