Components powering
QIAGEN Microbial Genomics Pro Suite

The bioinformatics platform

It takes high quality components to build performance. Microbial Genomics Pro Suite is developed based on CLC Genomics Workbench. Our CLC Genomics Server software provides a link to your high-performance computational backend. These two products are the platform on which we deliver bioinformatics – enterprise-ready and scalable to adjust to your sample volumes.

CLC Genomics Workbench delivers the intuitive user interface our users trust, and comes pre-loaded with tools that offer analysis solutions supporting the full range of “omics” data, for instance for de novo assembly, variant detection, transcriptomics or epigenomics.

Community supported

End-users as well as other bioinformatics companies use our CLC Software Developer Kit to convert popular bioinformatics tools into plugins for CLC Genomics Workbench.

Microbial Genomics Pro Suite is no exception – in addition to QIAGEN-built bioinformatics, users enjoy access to tools and algorithms developed by our valued partners who are experts in the field of microbial genomics.

GeneProbe Inc. brings sophisticated gene-finding tools to annotate genome and metagenome assemblies with the MetaGeneMark Plugin.



The CosmosID plug-in allows user to detect microbes in metagenomic samples with confidence.


Speed and deeper insight through expert curated reference data are hallmarks of CosmosID. With the CosmosID plugin, users gain access to GenBook®, a highly curated reference database of known pathogens and microbes including bacteria, viruses, fungi, parasites, and antibiotic resistance and virulence factors.


Pacific Biosciences scientists inspired the theory behind the error-correction algorithms supporting our PacBio De Novo Assembly pipeline. The Microbial Genomics Pro Suite officially belongs to an exclusive circle of “PacBio compatible analytics”. More about PacBio data assembly.
