Authors were searching for cause of resistance to antibiotic Bactobolin. Performed Illumina paired-end sequencing on resistant strains. Library construction used size-selection of library on Pippn Prep. Discovery of mutation was straightforward for two of four strains. Other two strains harbored a three base insertion which was not recognized in the initial Illumina sequencing.
