Examples of our work

Here are a few examples of our services. More information and price indications on request.

Research consulting

EXAMPLE. A client looked for a novel strategy to identify virulence genes from a bacterium of which the genome sequence was available but virulence genes had not been identified. A new technique was developed by MMGC to assess polymorphisms without knowing the phenotype of these genes. The project resulted in a complete new area of research.

EXAMPLE. An on-site consulting session was organised for the research group of a medical microbiology department. Each researcher presented his or her work in a 1-hour face-to-face meeting in which practical problems and future strategies were discussed. Follow-up advise was provided upon demand by Email and web-based conferencing. As a result of fruitful discussions, several projects progressed more rapidly and a number of scientific publications were written in collaboration as a result of the assistance provided by MMGC.

EXAMPLE. A group of enthousiast researchers had sequenced a highly variable region of a human pathogen. The sequences told their story, but what did it all mean? From a wealth of information, with the help of MMGC the most important data were subtracted, ordened, and interpreted for clinical relevance, and subsequently published in a high-standard journal.

Press release:
Hepatitis A was once an insect virus

We are proud to announce our latest publication, in which we performed a thorough analysis of Hepatitis A virus and discovered that this virus most likely had an ancestor virus replicating in insects. The work was initiated by MMGC in collaboration with colleagues from UAMS
