Can you use the SBanalyzer and Athena database with the V1-V9 kit as well as StrainID?

Yes, the SBanalyzer software can be used for V1-V9 and StrainID kits. When setting up the analysis in the software, just be sure to choose the correct dropdown when selecting kit type in the GUI.  Please be aware that while both amplicons can be mapped to the Athena database, strain level resolution is only achievable using the StrainID kit containing the PCR primers to amplify the longer 16S-ITS-23S gene sequences.
