A prerequisite to designing interventional therapeutic tools that harmonize the microbiotia is having the expertise on the entire process, such as sample collection, preparation and analysis, bioinformatics, and biological interpretation.
Micro- and Myco-biome Transcriptomics
Microbiome (fungal and bacterial) profiling compares the microbiota in various healthy and diseased conditions.
Microbial Proteomics and Metabolomics
Assessment of metabolome associated with microbiome analysis (tissue, stool, or culture models) and determining the identification of bacterial or fungal metabolites.
Microbial Bioinformatics and Computational Biology
A standardized operating procedure workflow which allows for demultiplexing and classification and bioinformatic filtering of the sequence data.
Microbial Biorepository and Cultivation Facilities
NTS partners with the Center for Medical Mycology to offer in vitro models of Candida biofilms to characterize formation on clinically relevant medical devices.
Vertebrate Animal Testing
NTS collaborates with the Center for Medical Mycology preclinical modeling core to offer several small animal models for fungal/bacterial infection/disease.
Advanced Microbial Imaging
Investigative advanced capabilities in microbial and fungal imaging using transmission and scanning electron microscopy.
Custom design and work with sponsors interested in promoting human health and combating disease.
