Microbial identification by DNA sequencing

Biostatistics 300

Service description

  • One of the most accurate ways of determining the taxonomical group of microorganisms is through the sequencing of very specific regions in their genome.
  • A PCR is conducted for amplifying these highly variable regions - RNA 16S in bacteria; RNA 5.8S gene and ITS1, ITS2 regions in fungi-, using primers that are homologous to very conserved regions.
  • This allows the assignment of the specimen to the closest taxonomical group by comparing the sequence obtained with available databases.

Materials to provide

  • Samples.

  • Further details on the project may be requested.
  • You will be able to exchange directly with the experts after filling in the form below.

Typical deliverables

  • Report with the analysis of the sequence and its assignment to its taxonomical group as described.
