Study Detail

TitleMetagenomic sequencing of DNA viruses in cystic fibrosis sputum allows assembly of phage sequence contigs of limited diversity which contain antimicrobial resistance genes
Study TypeMetagenomics
Abstract In this study metagenomic short read (Illumina) sequencing was used to explore the viral diversity of sputum from a cystic fibrosis (CF) patient. Bacteriophages were isolated from a sputum sample using a sequential filtration technique with DNase treatment. Phage DNA was extracted and amplified by a .. [more]
