What Is Next-Generation Sequencing?

The massively parallel sequencing technology known as next-generation sequencing (NGS) has revolutionized the biological sciences. With its ultra-high throughput, scalability, and speed, NGS enables researchers to perform a wide variety of applications and study biological systems at a level never before possible

Today's complex genomic research questions demand a depth of information beyond the capacity of traditional DNA sequencing technologies. Next-generation sequencing has filled that gap and becomes an everyday research tool to address these questions.

What NGS Can Do For You

NGS technology has fundamentally changed the kinds of questions scientists can ask and answer. Innovative sample preparation and data analysis options enable a broad range of applications. 

​​

​​

 

  • Rapidly sequence whole genomes

  • Zoom in to deeply sequence target regions

  • Utilize RNA sequencing (RNA-Seq) to discover novel RNA variants and splice sites, or quantify mRNAs for gene expression analysis

  • Analyze epigenetic factors such as genome-wide DNA methylation and DNA-protein interactions

  • Sequence cancer samples to study rare somatic variants, tumor subclones, and Study microbial diversity in humans or in the environment more
