Third-Generation Sequencing Guide to Whole Genome Re-sequencing
Whole Genome Re-sequencing offers the full spectrum of genetic variation of an organism (i.e. human, plant, animal or microbe) through the alignment of sequenced reads of entire genome to known genomic sequences. This genomics research further helped to refine our understandings on evolution, adaptation, and disease. It has been dominated by Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) technologies for decades, driven by its superiority in producing highly accurate (>99.9%) short sequencing reads, on a massive scale with cost-effectiveness. Yet, the suboptimal application of it in many instances inevitably revealed two major shortcomings: GC biased coverage and limited read length to span highly complex or repetitive area.
