Phase Genomics offers Hi-C genome assembly and metagenome deconvolution products and services that meet the needs of almost any research project.

ProxiMeta™ metagenome deconvolution method

Phase Genomics’ ProxiMeta™ Hi-C Metagenomic Deconvolution

A true revolution in microbial research, ProxiMeta Hi-C metagenome deconvolution offers researchers the ability to identify dozens or hundreds of high-quality, strain-level microbial genomes from a single sample, with no culturing or high molecular weight DNA extraction required. With high-quality genomes for microbes with as little as 0.05% cellular abundance in a sample, you can discover novel organisms and strains, identify plasmid-host relationships, study eukaryotic metagenomes, and more. Unlock new avenues of research in microbiomics, infectious disease, antibiotic resistance, food safety, and more with the power of ProxiMeta.

ProxiMeta Hi-C metagenome deconvolution is available as both a kit-plus-software product and a service.


From Sample to Sequencing in Record Time, in Your Lab, On your Sequencing Platform

Our ProxiMeta Hi-C kit goes from sample to sequencing in just over a day, giving you access the power of Hi-C easily and quickly.

We’ll send you a kit. You do the lab work, sequence the libraries, and upload your reads to our website. Our rapid, scalable cloud-based platform will send you a comprehensive set of assemblies, figures, and data.


Rely on Our Skilled Team to Deliver High-Quality Genomes from Your Sample

Want us to make your life easy and perform ProxiMeta Hi-C metagenome deconvolution for you? Need results in a hurry, or do you just want to test ProxiMeta on one sample the easy way? Take advantage of our service!

Simply send us a sample and we’ll do all the work for you. We will return all sequencing data and results to you, typically within 30 days.

Proximo™ scaffolding method

Phase Genomics’ Proximo™ Hi-C Scaffolding

The best solution on the market to create complete end-to-end chromosome-scale genome scaffolds—even from short-read assemblies–are our Proximo Hi-C genome scaffolding kits and services. Proximo Hi-C’s ability capture ultra-long genomic contiguity information from unbroken chromosomes enables researchers to answer questions difficult or impossible though other means, including structural variation, complex gene structure, gene linkage, gene regulation, and more.


Create Chromosome-Scale, Reference-Quality Genomes Yourself

We offer Proximo Hi-C genome scaffolding kits for both plants and animals. Our robust protocol lets you go from sample to sequencing in just over a day and includes scaffolding software and services to create your own reference-quality genome affordably.


Let Us Work with You to Create Reference-Quality Genomes

Offered as a service, you simply send us a small sample (typically under 0.5g of plant or animal tissue, a 20µL cell pellet, or equivalent) and your assembly and we’ll make a Hi-C library from your sample, sequence it, and create chromosome-scale scaffolds for you.


Get complete data with clear interpretations to quickly advance your research and publications. Our breadth of delivered data also enables researchers to explore future applications and make new discoveries hidden in every genome.

“We had tried all of these other genome assembly technologies. Then Phase Genomics used Proximo at the final step to make 9 complete scaffolds for 9 sugar beet chromosomes – exactly where I wanted to be. I almost fell off my chair when I saw it. It’s very exciting.”

– Prof. Mitch McGrath, Department of Plant, Soil, and Microbial Sciences, Michigan State University


Results are available within 30 days from receipt of sample for most service projects, and ProxiMeta kits typically ship within a few business days. Along with a FASTA files containing your results, you’ll receive publication-ready figures, statistics, and reports. Supporting metadata and raw chromatin conformation data (Hi-C read pairs) are also provided.

Biological samples can be solid tissue, cell pellets, or other minimally processed samples containing intact cells. Our Customer Satisfaction Guarantee means we will keep working with you at no charge on service projects until you agree that your results are great, and we offer a full money back guarantee on kits.

Complete chromosome-scale scaffolds and deconvoluted metagenomic assemblies, along with a continuing commitment to personalized service without hidden costs.
