In this protocol, we describe a method for the ‘universal’ amplification of the v4 region of the bacterial 16S rRNA gene from genomic DNA and prepare these amplicons so that they can be sequenced using the MiSeq system (Illumina). The protocol provides instruction on sequencing of 188 genomic DNA samples plus PCR positive and negative controls, which can be applied to any sample type where bacterial DNA may be of interest.
