JGI Researchers Use PacBio Sequencing to Create High-Resolution Phylogenetic Profiles for Microbes | GenomeWeb

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – A team led by researchers at the US Department of Energy's Joint Genome Institute has successfully created high-resolution phylogenetic profiles for microbial communities.

To achieve this, they performed single-molecule real-time sequencing using the Pacific Biosciences RSII platform to generate full-length 16S rRNA sequences, which the researchers have dubbed PhyloTags.
