Overview of Sequencing Technology Platforms
The high-throughput DNA sequencing technologies are based on immobilization of the DNA samples onto a solid support, cyclic sequencing reactions using automated fluidics devices, and detection of molecular events by imaging. Featured sequencing technologies include: GS FLX by 454 Life Technologies/Roche, Genome Analyzer by Solexa/Illumina, SOLiD by Applied Biosystems, CGA Platform by Complete Genomics, and PacBio RS by Pacific Biosciences. In addition, emerging technologies are discussed.
