CeGaT Full-Length 16S Sequencing Service

CeGaT this week launched a full-length 16S rRNA sequencing service, including all variable regions of the 16s rRNA gene. 16S rRNA sequencing is one of the most widely used methods to determine taxonomic distribution in bacterial communities, such as the gut microbiome. The highly conserved 16S rRNA gene is approximately 1,500 bp long and consists of nine hypervariable regions (V1 – V9) that differ between different bacteria. CeGaT uses Pacific Biosciences' Sequel IIe system as part of its service, enabling precise long-read sequencing generated by circular consensus sequencing. The company also said that its service yields HiFi long reads of about 1,500 bp, and can simultaneously analyze multiple samples.
