Today’s complex genomic research questions demand a depth of information beyond the capabilities of traditional DNA sequencing technologies. Next-generation sequencing (NGS) has rapidly been adopted as an important research tool, enabling previously unanswered questions to be addressed.
Illumina next-generation sequencing utilizes a fundamentally different approach from the classic Sanger chain-termination method. It leverages sequencing by synthesis (SBS) technology – tracking the addition of labelled nucleotides as the DNA chain is copied – in a massively parallel fashion.
