Next-generation sequencing steps

NGS technology Principle: The principle of NGS or next-generation sequencing is quite similar to the Sanger sequencing technique which relies on capillary electrophoresis. The genomic strand is fragmented and each base in respective fragments is recognized by emitted signals when fragments ligated contrary to the template strand. (Next-generation sequencing steps) Material required: Adaptor Emulsion oil …
