Introduction of 16S / 18S / ITS Amplicon Sequencing

16S rDNA has been the most commonly used molecular clock in bacterial taxonomic research. Its sequence contains 9 variable regions and 10 constant regions. The variable region varies with bacteria, and the degree of variation is closely related to the phylogeny of bacteria. By detecting the sequence variation and abundance of 16S rDNA, we can understand the bacterial diversity in environmental samples. 16S rDNA-based analysis hence plays an important role in microbial classification and identification, micro-ecological research, etc.

18S rDNA or ITS (Internal Transcribed Spacer) is widely used in the classification and identification of fungi. 18S rDNA is more suitable for the classification of phylogenetic level or above in phylogenetic studies; ITS belongs to a moderately conserved region, and can be used to study species and sub-classic categorical steps.
