NextGen sequencing

The research activities within the Life Science community are going through an exciting new phase of change and growth as a result of the opportunities offered by high throughput sequencing also called Next Generation Sequencing, NGS. This novel approach is progressively delivering on its promise as to sequence DNA at an unprecedented speed and quality, enabling impressive scientific achievements and novel applications. NGS has already demonstrated great impact on different fields such as in medical, microbial, animal and plant research. Additionally, Next Gen Sequencing has equally a huge potential as a tool for drug discovery, transcriptomics and diagnostics to name a few of them.
