Karyosoft and the Phytobiomes Alliance

“We are honored to join the Phytobiomes Alliance team. Because Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) technologies are getting cheaper, scientists, on one hand, get the opportunities to discover novel microbes, microbial community and their interactions, but on the other hand, face challenges to manage and mine this “genomical” amount of sequence data. Transforming this big data into novel innovations rapidly make a huge impact in agriculture, human health and other areas of life sciences. By becoming a part of Phytobiomes Alliance team, Karyosoft gets an opportunity to change the world using microbial genomics data.”
