Application Note: Easy automation of metagenomic library preparation with the epMotion® 5073m NGS Solution
20 August 2019
Metagenomic studies can determine the genetic composition of microbiological samples. These studies usually rely on the use of marker genes, such as 16S rDNA, for the phylogenic classification. Which specific marker gene and region will be examined and how deeply sequenced will depend on the aim of the study. Nevertheless, the basic approach of library generation is common to these experimental designs. It is important to have a robust workflow to correctly analyze the samples. In this application note we demonstrate such a workflow, which may be customized and scaled to specific customer needs.
