Phylochip Research

The Berkeley PhyloChip

The PhyloChip, developed by Dr. Gary Andersen at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, is capable of identifying over 60,000 taxa of bacteria and archaea in a single test based on the 16S gene. The PhyloChip has already been applied in numerous other applications ranging from the Gulf Oil Spill to the NASA/JPL Planetary Protection Program and the NIH Human Microbiome Project. It is the main tool used in the Thermopile and DNA Everywhere projects to determine the nature and dynamics of complex microbial communities in a way never before possible.
