16S/18S/ITS Amplicon Sequencing
DESCRIPTION
SPECIFICATION
Service Description

Over 99% of natural microorganisms can not be isolated and cultured clonally. In addition, traditional isolation and culture-dependent methods have challenged the study of microorganisms in their natural environment.

Metagenomic studies of genetic material that is directly recovered from environmental samples, have benefitted greatly from advanced NGS technology as a method for the exploration of microbial biodiversity.

16S and 18S rDNA are hypervariable regions in the 16S or 18S rRNA genes in bacteria and fungus, and ITS (Internal Transcribed Spacer) is the spacer DNA between the small-subunit and large-subunit rRNA genes in bacteria, fungus and archaea.

Sequence comparison of 16S/18S/ITS regions is widely used in taxonomy and molecular phylogeny because of their easy amplification by PCR, even from low quantities of DNA, while they have a high degree of variation even between closely related species.
