Microbiota Characterization
 April 02, 2015
The gut microbiota (GM) is now recognized as a key factor in health and disease.  Differences in the composition of the gut microbiota of research animals may contribute to altered phenotypes or poor reproducibility of animal-based studies.  Culture-independent techniques such as next-generation sequencing (NGS) allow in-depth characterization of the gut microbiota.  The MMRRC now offers a full line of NGS-related services including fecal DNA extraction, 16S rDNA gene sequencing, and informatics analysis to researchers using mouse models.  For more information, please see here or contact mmrrc@missouri.edu.

Genotyping
Genotyping requires tail tip, ear punch or sperm aliquot.  Types of assays available include standard PCR, standard PCR followed by restriction digest or sequencing, RT-PCR, qPCR and probe-based allelic discrimination.

Genotyping assay development requires certain sequence information and a positive control sample.  Please contact us to discuss.

Validation/optimization of a genotyping assay requires an assay protocol with primer information and a positive control sample.

Microsatellite Analysis:  Low density microsatellite or SNP analysis is available for genotyping, strain identification or marker-assisted speed congenic approaches.
