Antibiotic discovery throughout the Small World Initiative: A molecular strategy to identify biosynthetic gene clusters involved in antagonistic activity

January 2017

Elizabeth Davis, Tyler Sloan, Krista Aurelius, Angela Barbour, et al.

Through a citizen science program, college students analyzed 77 soil-derived bacteria to promote genetic characterization and antibiotic discovery for the fight against drug-resistant pathogens. They chose PacBio sequencing to sequence the whole genome of one microbe. That pipeline included BluePippin to generate 20 Kb libraries.
