Introduction to Microbial Diversity: Phylogenetics and DNA sequencing

Overview: This podcast contains an overview of some of the many molecular techniques a scientist can use to examine the species and functional gene complexity of microbial communities. There is a special emphasis on techniques associated with analyzing the 16S/18S rRNA gene of microbes.

Learning Objective: By the end of this podcast a student should be familiar with the basic molecular and sequencing approaches of studying the diversity...
