We report the results of pyrosequencing of DNA collected from the activated sludge basin of a wastewater treatment plant in Charlotte, NC. Using the 454-FLX technology, we generated 378,601 sequences with an average read length of 250.4 bp. Running the 454 assembly algorithm over our sequences yielded very poor assembly, with only 0.3% of our sequences(More)
Title ARISA data from the human gut microbiome can detect individual differences observed by 454 sequencing regardless of binning strategy. Abstract ARISA (Automated Ribosomal Intergenic Spacer Analysis) is a low-cost technique that allows for the rapid comparison of different microbial environments. In this study, we asked if a set of ARISA profiles can(More)
Changes in the composition of microbial communities are often examined using high-throughput sequencing (HTS). Here we analyzed bar-coded Illumina sequencing data from a previous work describing the microbial community found in the sputum of a cystic fibrosis patient by itself or in combination with qPCR to measure the absolute abundance of Pseudomonas(More)
