Reducing GC Bias in WGS: Moving Beyond PCR

11:49 EDT 8 Jul 2019 | Bitesize Bio

WGS technologies have seen significant progress since the completion of the Human Genome Project in 2003. First-generation Sanger Sequencers were limited by lengthy run times, high expenses, and throughputs that read only tens of kilobases per run. The arrival of second-generation sequencers in the mid-2000s brought about the plummeting of sequencing costs and run times,…
