BLIRT EasyGenotyping ITS PCR - bacteria strains genotyping using ribotyping technique

The aim of this experiment is to use the ribotyping for the intra- and interspecies differentiation of the supplied bacterial strains (DNA from 6 different species, 3 isolates each).

EasyGenotyping ITS-PCR - educational kit for bacteria strains genotyping using ribotyping technique

AIM: The purpose of the exercise is to introduce students to the ribotyping methods. Microorganism differentiation is often based on the genes encoding ribosomal RNA (rRNA) of small and large subunit of the ribosome. These genes, forming the rrn operon, are characteristic for all bacterial organisms. Between the sequences coding the ribosomal subunits 16S, 23S and 5S rRNA, there are polymorphic regions which vary in size and sequence. These regions of the operon are convenient molecular targets used in the phylogenetic studies. The ITS-PCR belongs to the ribotyping methods and it analyses a polymorphic region between the 16S and 23S rRNA coding sequences. The aim of this experiment is to use the ribotyping for the intra- and interspecies differentiation of the supplied bacterial strains (DNA from 6 different species, 3 isolates each).

The kit is designed to perform experiments during two laboratory classes (I - PCR set-up - 1.5-2 hours, II - electrophoresis - 2 hours). We suggest to perform laboratory experiments in six groups of two students.
