Shotgun Sequencing

Also found in: Wikipedia.
The sequencing of a large DNA segment by sequencing of randomly-derived subsegments, whose order and orientation within the large segment are unknown until the final assembly of overlapping sequences.

However, Creative Biolabs just took a massive leap forward into the new era of this field, with unchallenged ability to achieve 100% accuracy in antibody sequencing by precisely distinguishing between leucine and isoleucine, based on the proprietary Database Assisted Shotgun Sequencing (DASS) technology.
We performed whole-genome shotgun sequencing and assembly as described previously (10) (Appendix).
Several molecular biology techniques were used to assess the characterization of the gut microbiome: denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis (DGGE), fluorescence in situ hybridization probes (FISH), metagenomics shotgun sequencing, and characterization of the 16S rRNA genes in a sample, and groups specific real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) are some of the assays.
More recently, the advent of next-generation sequencing platforms has allowed unbiased approaches to high-resolution characterization of complex microbial communities known as metagenomic shotgun sequencing (MSS).
