TITLE: Advances in cpn60 barcoding for microbial species identification

ABSTRACT:

Advances in cpn60 barcoding for microbial species identification

The gene encoding the 60 kDa chaperonin protein, cpn60, is conserved in virtually all bacteria and a region within this gene provides a barcode sequence for the identification of bacteria to the species level. Applications of cpn60 barcode sequencing in microbiome research and infectious disease diagnostics are supported by the cpnDB sequence database. This presentation will provide an overview of cpn60-based methods, including recent advances in microbiome profiling.
