A beginner’s guide to DNA sequencing and its applications
DNA sequencing determines the order of the four chemical building blocks – called “bases” – that make up the DNA molecule. DNA sequencing has been used broadly in the life science and medical fields. It continues to grow in popularity due to the power, convenience, and advancement of next-generation sequencing platforms. As its popularity increases, researchers continue to push the limits of current technologies to accommodate challenging samples and applications.
