Shotgun metagenomics: A promising new method toward diagnosing infections

By Sharon Rosen sharonhrosen

Article by Christoph Bahn This article originally appeared on Mayo Clinic Laboratories Insights. Shotgun metagenomic sequencing (aka “shotgun metagenomics”) is a revolutionary new way to detect infectious organisms. Currently, this technology is undergoing validation for clinical testing in Mayo Clinic’s Clinical Microbiology Laboratory. By sequencing all of the DNA (or RNA in some instances) in […]

Using CSI-type technology to unravel the source of bacteria

By Susan Buckles susanbuckles

Mayo Clinic laboratory workers have a new tool to perform high tech genetic sleuthing for the source of stubborn, sometimes life-threatening bacteria. Bacterial whole genome sequencing can trace individual isolates of bacteria such as Staphylococcus aureus, also known as Staph aureus, to determine if an outbreak is occurring. This common bacterium that has plagued health […]
