HMP Researcher Offers Insights into Shotgun Sequencing of GI Bugs | GenomeWeb

PHILADELPHIA (GenomeWeb News) – Preliminary high-throughput shotgun sequencing analyses of microbial communities in the human gastrointestinal tract are shedding light on the type and amount of sequence data needed to glean information from such experiments.

During a presentation at the American Society for Microbiology conference earlier this week, George Weinstock, associate director of Washington University's Genome Sequencing Center, outlined his group's efforts to use high-throughput shotgun sequencing to characterize microbial communities in the gastrointestinal tract.
