  • a Cosmids were end sequenced with M13 forward and reverse primers flanking the site of metagenomic DNA insertion. For each clone, two end sequences were obtained and are referred to as “reverse” and “forward” reads. Top matches for BLASTx analyses are shown. Positive results are the number of amino acids from the query that match the amino acids from the subject sequence. The total number of amino acids from the subject is shown.
