DNA sequencing is the process of determining the precise order of nucleotides within a DNA molecule.
During DNA sequencing, the bases of a small fragment of DNA are sequentially identified from signals emitted as each fragment is re-synthesized from a DNA template strand.
Next-generation sequencing (NGS) extends this process across millions of reactions in a massively parallel fashion enabling rapid sequencing of large DNA stretches spanning entire genomes, producing hundreds of gigabases of data in a single sequencing run.
