Advancements in Next-Generation Sequencing

Book

Abstract

  • Copyright © 2016 Shawn E. Levy and Richard M. Myers. The term next-generation sequencing is almost a decade old, but it remains the colloquial way to describe highly parallel or high-output sequencing methods that produce data at or beyond the genome scale. Since the introduction of these technologies, the number of applications and methods that leverage the power of genome-scale sequencing has increased at an exponential pace. This review highlights recent concepts, technologies, and methods from next-generation sequencing to illustrate the breadth and depth of the applications and research areas that are driving progress in genomics.
