Streptomycetes sequencing
Earlham Institute

This sequence alignment was generated using the PacBio technology and shows more continuity, more even coverage and less bias than other sequencing methods. The graph shows how a DNA sequence of interest compares to a reference sequence. Scientists at Earlham Institute on the Norwich Research Park used this technology to screen different strains of the soil bacteria Streptomyces, which are intensely studied due to their ability to produce antibiotics. Sequencing these genes could potentially lead to the discovery of novel antibiotics.
