Environmental microbiome

Metagenomics has been used in diagnostics, as the microbial composition predicts the onset , progression or outcome of imbalances.

The microbiome is measurable, plastic and responds quickly to the action of new remedial actions.

Gentros offers soil mapping studies based on microbiota metagenomics to test new products, pre-biotics and pro-biotics for greater productivity .

The communities of microorganisms in the human body are collectively known as the human microbiome , and to get to know them regardless of culture, the technique used is metagenomics . It is estimated that the human body is home to more than 100 trillion microorganisms and that their genome is 100 times larger than the human, comprising about 3 million genes.

Human Microbiome

With the advancement of new generation DNA sequencing techniques and the growth of genomic banks, microbiota metagenomics emerged, which allows the identification of the total set of microorganisms that live in symbiosis or are pathogenic to human cells.

Gentros offers efficacy and safety studies based on microbiota metagenomics for testing new products, of prebiotics and probiotics focused on the food, pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries. We follow the protocols approved by the International Microbioma consortia.
