Assessing diversity of the female urine microbiota by high throughput sequencing of 16S rDNA amplicons

Abstract

Urine within the urinary tract is commonly regarded as "sterile" in cultivation terms. Here, we present a comprehensive in-depth study of bacterial 16S rDNA sequences associated with urine from healthy females by means of culture-independent high-throughput sequencing techniques. Sequencing of the V1V2 and V6 regions of the 16S ribosomal RNA gene using the… (More)
