Stepping stones in DNA sequencing.
Bottom Line: In recent years there have been tremendous advances in our ability to rapidly and cost-effectively sequence DNA.However, recent announcements in nanopore sequencing hold the promise of removing this read-length limitation, enabling sequencing of larger intact DNA fragments.This review covers some of the technical advances in sequencing that have opened up new frontiers in genomics.
