Next Generation Sequencing (NGS)

Next Generation Sequencing (NGS)

Next generation sequencing services are available to the research community through the Genomics Core. The concept behind NGS technology is similar to sequencing by capillary electrophoresis – bases of a small DNA fragment are sequentially identified from signals emitted as each fragment is re-synthesized from the template strand. NGS extends this process across millions of reactions in a massively parallel fashion, rather than being limited to a single or a few DNA fragments. This advance enables rapid sequencing of large stretches of DNA base pairs spanning entire genomes, with the latest instruments capable of producing hundreds of gigabases of data in a single sequencing run (“An Introduction to NGS,” 2013).
