16S rRNA sequencing: From DNA extraction to entire microbial community analysis

16S rRNA sequencing: From DNA extraction to entire microbial community analysis

Topic: None

Working closely with the microbial community, we’ve developed a powerful next generation sequencing solution that enables researchers to analyze an entire microbial community within a sample, including species that may not be identified otherwise. This culture-free method eliminates the time and expense involved in growing pure cultures and individually sequencing each type of bacteria.

Discover how you can leverage these next generation sequencing solutions to initiate and accelerate your own 16S rRNA studies.

Topics include:

  • An overview of the streamlined 16S rRNA metagenomics sequencing protocol
  • Discussion of analysis options with MSR and BaseSpace
  • Live demonstration of the BaseSpace 16S app
  • Case study conversation
    • A comparison of 16s metagenomic sequencing on MiSeq and 454
