  • 16s sequencing of 16S rRNA. The highly conserved region of the genome that codes for 16S ribosomal RNA in bacteria and archaea is amplified by PCR and sequenced. Specific sequence differences correspond to a taxa at an operational taxonomic unit (OTU). OTUs correspond to organisms at the phyla and genera level and can be less precise at the species level.
  • 18s sequencing of 18S rRNA. . SimilarUsed for eukaryotes, homologous to the 16S rRNA region used for bacterial and archaea.

NGS platforms sequence millions of small DNA fragments in parallel. Bioinformatics uses sequence maps to figure out where the sequenced fragments fit. NGS can sequence entire genomes or target specific regions. Amplicon sequencingAmplicon sequencing targets specific regions by PCR which are then sequenced with NGS.

  • MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry. Matrix assisted laser desorption ionization (MALDI) is a form of mass spectrometry that is used to generate a protein mass fingerprint (PMF) which is compared to a database. Mass spectrometry is a technique that uses ionization to categorize chemical compounds based on their mass to charge ratio. Microbial applications usually use time of flight (TOF) analyzers to measure mass.
