  • Hypervariable regions matter in 16s Amplicon Sequencing
    In recent years, 16s ribosomal RNA (rRNA) hypervariable regions have been widely sequenced across various field in an attempt to identify and differentiate among the numerous species of bacteria. From environmental microbial community studies to human and animals microbiome, high throughput sequencing of 16s rRNA gene reveals previously unknown information, allowing for a deeper understanding of the sample in study. Reviews of various scientific journals point towards a general consensus that sequencing more than one 16s rRNA region has the benefit of eliminating potential false negative results.
