How many PCR cycles should I use to create an amplicon library?

One of my side projects deals with the gut microbiota of Atlantic Cod (Gadus morhua). In 2014 we published a pilot experiment on this where we sequenced the 16S rRNA to get a taxonomical overview of the microbial gut content … Continue reading
