The composition of microbial communities of different habitats can be determined by sequencing the variable regions (V1 - V9) of the bacterial 16S rDNA. Depending on the experimental questions and the number of samples, we offer various DNA sample preparation workflows (V region-specific amplicon PCRs) in combination with the appropriate sequencing platform:
- V3 / V6: Ion Torrent PGM, S5 and Proton
- V3 - V4: MiSeq
The GTL can be of assistance for planning, designing and implementing an experiment as well as data analysis.
