Fluorescence-Based Automated DNA Sequence Analysis

  • Lloyd M. Smith
Part of the Genetic Engineering book series (GEPM, volume 10)


DNA sequence analysis is one of the most important techniques of modern molecular biology. It permits the rapid and complete determination of the precise chemical structure of the genetic material. This information is the foundation for the subsequent study of genes and their gene products. Such work includes the analysis of gene expression, protein structure and function, and the evolution, polymorphism, and diversity of the genome.
