  Working Principles
Click to ViewMicroSEQ® ID Microbial Identification Software allows easily identifying and classifying unidentified bacterial or fungal sequences by comparing them to a validated microbial library. This bundled version includes the bacterial and fungal sequence libraries comprising of over 2300 microbial 16S rDNA sequences.

  User Instructions
• Identification of microbes based on rRNA gene sequence data • During analyzing the any project data, the library search report has to be evaluated to check the library matches against each specimen consensus sequence. Use the Library Search Report to: --> Identify the unknown organism. --> Assess the accuracy of the identification. --> Examine results for all matches. --> View phylogenetic relationships between the unknown and the top matches in a phylogenetic tree. --> Determine if a match was made against a validated (proprietary) library or a custom library. • To construct a phylogenetic tree, first search libraries to add sequences to tree and then search projects to add specimens to tree. • Click ‘Compute Tree’. The Tree Computation dialog box opens, then click OK. • Click the species name as desired in the tree, and then click the second species name as your second selection to view the Genetic Distance % for the selected species in the tree diagram • While viewing the tree, zoom the tree diagram as needed and select ‘File Print’ to print the tree diagram
