Sanger and Maxam-Gilbert sequencing technologies were the most common sequencing technologies used by biologists until the emergence of a new era of sequencing technologies opening new perspectives for genomes exploration and analysis.
Sanger and Maxam-Gilbert sequencing technologies were classified as the First Generation Sequencing Technology [10,16] who initiated the field of DNA sequencing with their publication in 1977.
Maxam-Gilbert sequencing reactions were carried out by the standard procedures [19].
The resulting copies were either cleaved into shorter segments (as in the case of Maxam-Gilbert sequencing) or prematurely terminated by reaction (as with Sanger sequencing) and the resulting collection of fragments were separated according to length using gel electrophoresis.
