What is the advantage of using StrainID?

This chart below shows the advantages of the various amplicons. Here, we are looking at 137 E. coli strains. E. coli 16S gene is similar for many strains, so even if we target the full 16S sequence (i.e. V1V9) we would only be able to resolve ~50% of the strains. The StrainID kit allows full resolution and identification of all 137 strains.
