Part Descriptions

LP133422-8   Streptococcus pyogenes M protein (emm) gene
The emm gene, defined here as the Streptococcus pyogenes gene amplified with primers 1 and 2, encodes the cell surface M virulence protein putatively responsible for at least 100 known M serospecificities of S. pyogenes. Source: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, CDC

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, CDC
