Part Descriptions

LP16745-9   Rickettsia typhus group
Rickettsia is a genus of non-motile, Gram-negative, and highly pleomorphic bacteria. Their survival depends on entry, growth, and replication within the cytoplasm of eukaryotic host cells. Rickettsia species are carried by many ticks, fleas, and lice, and cause a variety of diseases in humans. Rickettsia is classified into three groups: spotted fever, typhus and scrub typhus. Original classification was based on serology and has since been confirmed by DNA sequencing.

Rickettsia typhus group and associated illnesses include R typhi (Murine typhus) and R prowazekii (epidemic, recrudescent and sporadic typhus).

LP150045-5   Sequencing
Sequencing is a method used to determine the sequence of individual genes, larger genetic regions (i.e. clusters of genes or operons), full chromosomes or entire genomes. Historically, most sequencing has been performed using the chain termination method developed by Frederick Sanger in 1977.[PMID:271968] Sequencing technologies have improved dramatically, making them cheaper, faster, and more accurate. Next-generation sequencing (NGS), also known as high-throughput sequencing, deep sequencing, and second-generation sequencing, is a type of technology that uses parallel sequencing of multiple small fragments of DNA to determine sequence. This "high-throughput" technology has increased the speed and amount of DNA sequenced at a significantly reduced cost.[PMID:18576944] Several NGS platforms (ie, sequencing instruments and associated reagents) have been developed. Third-generation sequencing is another methodology currently under development that uses parallel sequencing similar to NGS. In contrast to NGS, third-generation sequencing uses single DNA molecules rather than amplified DNA as a template.[PMID:20858600] Source: Regenstrief LOINC
