From: Early Lyme disease with spirochetemia - diagnosed by DNA sequencing

Figure 1

DNA sequencing of Borrelia burgdorferi 16S rDNA detected in the plasma of a spirochetemic patient. This 58-base sequence was excised from an electropherogram generated by an ABI 3130 genetic analyzer. The template was the nested PCR amplicon generated by the TEC1 and LD2 primers. The sequencing primer was TEC1. BLAST alignment analysis validates the molecular diagnosis of hematogenous dissemination of Lyme disease in this patient. ABI, Applied Biosystems, Foster City, CA
