Our team has over 20 years of experience in molecular diet analysis of animal-animal and animal-plant interactions. This applies for the identification of herbivory, granivory, and carnivory — including parasites/parasitoid- host interactions. We reliably identify trophic interactions from faces, regurgitates, gut content and whole body DNA extracts of consumers (in the case of invertebrates only).

Our experts are specialized to detect trophic relationships, which are usually difficult to track and are able to identify those trophic links with empirically unprecedented precision. Choose from our expertise in a broad spectrum of molecular approaches, including diagnostic PCR, semi-quantitative and quantitative PCR, as well as next generation sequencing/metabarcoding.

Sinsoma provides custom tailored identification approaches upon your specific research question. We offer flexible solutions throughout the entire workflow, starting with sample collection and the DNA-extraction until bioinformatics.
