Next Generation Sequencing

Next generation sequencing (NGS), a massively parallel or deep sequencing technique, has revolutionized genomic research. Compare with the first generation sequencing, the next generation sequencing is characterized by high accuracy, fast speed and low cost. So far, there are many NGS platforms involving different sequencing technologies. Although these platforms differ substantial in terms of their engineering, sequencing chemistry, output, accuracy and cost, all of NGS platforms perform sequencing of millions of small fragments of DNA in parallel.
