Next-Generation Sequencing

This section describes the processes involved in and applications of next-generation sequencing

Following the completion of the human genome project, the high demand for low-cost sequencing has given rise to a number of high-throughput, next-generation sequencing (NGS) technologies. 

These new sequencing platforms allow high-throughput sequencing for a wide range of applications such as:

  • Whole genome sequencing as de novo or resequencing
  • Targeted resequencing
  • Transcriptome profiling
  • Microbiome research
  • Gene regulation studies
