This results in huge data files that are processed through a pipeline of tools to reconstruct the original DNA sequence from the fragments and to flag variants that may point to e.g.
Pyro sequencing techniques consist of series of sequential steps for detection of DNA sequence. The DNA fragment whose sequence needs to be identified is isolated and amplified.
Processing and cooking the product can affect the ability to obtain a DNA sequence.
The team also fabricated hydrogel crab-shaped devices in which the antennae, claws and legs each curled up in in response to their matching DNA sequence. The crab devices remained in their actuated state for at least 60 days.
ISLAMABAD -- Researchers from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have developed a protein-based sensor that can detect a particular DNA sequence in a cell and then trigger a specific response, such as cell death.
Researchers will separate and sequence single chromosomal DNA strands, and then using novel technique to make a number of copies of genomes, they will develop DNA sequence libraries for DNA sequencing of single cells.
DNAnexus a provider of cloud-based data analysis and management platform for DNA sequence data, announced on Friday that it has closed a USD15m Series C funding to accelerate the commercialisation of its platform for DNA sequencing data.
For example, if tags were seen on the same DNA sequence in those with and without RA, it was assumed that the tags at those sites were irrelevant to the cause or development of the disease.
In addition, any DNA sequence can be synthesized in any desirable length [8].
The arrangement of these four bases determines the exact function and coding capacity of the DNA sequence and helps in distinguishing between individuals.
The goal of this study is to generate high quality, strong signal, long reading length, and low signal/noise ratio DNA sequence in modern capillary automated DNA sequencer with the lowest labor and expense costs.
