Investigate the genetic potential of complex microbiomes.

Get Actionable Insights from Complex Microbiomes

Superior genomics and bioinformatics approaches facilitate the understanding of highly complex microbial environments. Computomics provides Metagenomics Data Analysis Solutions for bacterial, archaeal, fungal and viral community profiling that enable you to simultaneously identify thousand of species, millions of genes, and diverse biochemical pathways relevant to agriculture, medicine, and the environment. We deliver deep, actionable metagenomics insights through an easy-to-understand interface. If you wish, we support you through all stages of your research project - from experimental design to data collection, sequencing, analysis, to a written results report.

The scope of our solutions:

One Health - Microbiome Analysis from Farm to Fork


Maintain or increase plant nutrition, resistance, and finally, yield through microbial-driven health and risk assessment of soil, plant, or seed. Gain insights into potential stressors like drought, salinity, or pathogen load. Access the potential for a sustainable, climate-friendly, healthy, and resilient food production system.

Food Safety and Quality

Ensure food quality, security, and consumer health. Avert hazard outbreaks and facilitate preventive actions by detecting food-borne pathogens and by implementing microbial tracking along the entire food supply chain. Mitigate spoilage and optimize fermentation and ripening by monitoring microbial communities and their metabolites during food processing and storage.

Human & Animal Health Care

Monitor livestock and reduce antibiotic use by promoting beneficial microbial communities. Support the diagnostics, development and testing of novel drugs and cosmeceutical products as well as microbiome-based treatment strategies (e.g. via probiotics, FMT) to fight cancer, obesity, and mental diseases. Study nutritional, immunotherapeutic and epidemiological aspects towards a healthy microbiome. 

Industrial Applications

Longitudinal studies such as for wastewater treatment facilities disclose impacts on public health and environmental safety. Gain key insights into treatment strategies by detecting harmful microbial agents and antibiotic resistance genes by tracing them over time and space. Understand the crucial role microbes play for bioremediation, biofuel production, degradation of bioplastics and biopolymers, corrosions control, bioleaching, and biorecovery. 

Analyze Complex Microbiomes Through An Easy-to-Use Interface

Our MORPHEUS Metagenomics Comparison and Analysis Platform enables you to perform automated and reproducible microbiome analyses without the need for local computing infrastructure. Your metagenomics team can focus on data analysis and interpretation instead of data handling and processing. MORPHEUS takes care of the preprocessing and read classification required for MEGAN6 and DADA2, among other microbiome analysis tools.


More about MORPHEUS

  • Automated Pre-Processing – Trimming and filtering of Metataxonomics or Metagenomics sequencing data (short/long reads)
  • Diamond Integration – Read classification with unprecedented speed: up to 10,000 times faster than BLASTX
  • Interactive Visualization – Access, explore and monitor taxonomic and functional results easily in your browser (even on tablet or phone)
  • Protect – Easy-to-use, secure web interface based on local infrastructure
  • Export and Scale – Fully compatible with MEGAN6 and third-party analysis technologies

Let Our Experts Guide Your Metagenomics Project

Computomics offers personalized support and service for all stages of your research project – from experimental design to data collection, analysis and a written report. We take the time to develop a profound understanding of your research goals before we help plan an experiment. This enables us to give valid experimental recommendations on the front end, such as number of required samples, technical and biological replicates, sequencing technology and required depth of coverage.


On the back end, we perform bioinformatics and statistical analysis, applying innovative machine learning methods where applicable. The final project report includes powerful visualizations, a full methods section and a summary of key findings. Our experts not only help to design experiments and to visualize data, but also to deliver insightful, actionable results.
