Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS)
Next-generation sequencing (NGS) is a powerful method used to identify strains, especially those from complex microbiomes.
16S rRNA Sequencing
This method is used in phylogeny and taxonomy studies to identify and compare different bacteria present in a given sample.
Compared to whole genome sequencing, targeted sequencing is a cost effective and rapid method used by researchers to study specific regions of DNA.
