IMBBC offers an array of genetic services for industry and academia, which include:

  • Genetic Identification of species (DNA barcoding) from different source materials (using mitochondrial and/or nuclear markers), for fraud detection, forensic etc
  • Genetic analysis for aquaculture fish species (parentage assignments, estimation of genetic diversity of broodstock etc)
  • DNA sequencing and microsatellite genotyping on an ABI 3730 DNA analyzer, for phylogenetic and population genetic studies.
  • llumina MiSeq library preparation and sequencing of
    • amplicons (for microbial diversity and DNA metabarcoding)
    • other targeted sequencing (ddRAD)
    • genome DNA sequencing (de novo & resequencing) for small to medium-sized genomes
    • metagenomic studies with few samples
    • smallRNA/microRNA sequencing
    • transcriptome sequencing with few samples
    • quality control of libraries before larger-scale sequencing
  • Oxford Nanopore MinION library preparation and sequencing of
    • whole genomes
    • amplicons
    • direct RNA
    • modified bases detection


  • Research institutions and universities, aquaculture companies, forest management authorities
