Analysis of Metagenomic NGS Data: Identification of Zika Virus

A whole pipeline for the analysis of metagenomic Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) data can be carried out with Geneious Prime. Analysis of complex microbiomes or detection of low-concentration components in mixed genomes can be performed. The latter is useful in the detection of pathogens, such as Zika virus (ZIKV) from plasma.
Here we describe a pipeline in Geneious Prime which allows accurate identification and analysis of low concentrations of ZIKV from high-throughput metagenomic data proceeding from a patient with suspected infection.
