Multidisciplinary consultancy for microbiota sequencing, bioinformatic interpretation and analysis of bacteria and fungi

The description of microbiota is perhaps the most significant breakthrough in modern medicine. Thanks to the revolution in gene sequencing technology one can now generate large amounts of data from samples of gut microbiota. But generating data is one thing, interpreting and analysing it, in harmony with your clinical study, is quite another.
Microbiota Center Amsterdam (MiCA) is at the forefront of this field and sets itself apart from commercially-oriented “sample testing shops” by providing scientists and clinicians with multidisciplinary consultancy and study guidance. MiCA’s team includes microbiologists, medical biologists, bioinformatics specialists and clinicians to help you from study set-up through analysis to interpretation and final report.
