Microbiome taxonomic profiling (MTP) is a method to elucidate taxonomic composition of the complex microbial community. The currently available and widely used NGS platforms are Illumina MiSeq (pair-end 250 bp) targeting V3V4 region and Pacific Biosciences (PacBio) targeting full-length. Here, we give statistics on lengths of amplicons.
Various PCR primers that are frequently used to parts of 16S rRNA gene are given here.
The amplification of primers used by ChunLab are:
- MiSeq primers targeting V3V4 region of Bacteria
- PacBio primers targeting full-length 16S rRNA of Bacteria
Statistics of amplicon lengths
The lengths were calculated from reference sequences included in EzBioCloud 16S databases (Yoon et al. 2017). The values are without primers.
