Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS): Advancing Genomic Analysis

NGS, short for next-generation sequencing, represents a cutting-edge, massively parallel sequencing technology that provides unprecedented levels of throughput, scalability, and rapidity. Its primary function involves the determination of nucleotide sequences within complete genomes or specific segments of DNA or RNA. This transformative technology has reshaped the landscape of biological sciences, empowering laboratories to undertake an extensive array of applications and explore biological systems at a depth previously unattainable.

In addressing contemporary intricate genomics inquiries, the demands for information have surpassed the capabilities of conventional DNA sequencing methods. NGS has effectively bridged this gap, emerging as an indispensable tool for delving into these intricate scientific questions.

Applications of Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS)

The advent of next-generation sequencing (NGS) has substantially expanded the scope of inquiries that researchers can pursue. Leveraging innovative sample preparation techniques and advanced data analysis, NGS has enabled a diverse array of applications. Specifically, NGS facilitates the following capabilities:

  • Rapid sequencing of entire genomes
  • In-depth sequencing of targeted regions
  • Utilization of RNA sequencing (RNA-Seq) for the discovery of novel RNA variants and splice sites, as well as the quantification of mRNAs for gene expression analysis
  • Analysis of epigenetic factors, including genome-wide DNA methylation and DNA-protein interactions
  • Sequencing of cancer samples to investigate rare somatic variants, tumor subclones, and related aspects
  • Study of the human microbiome
  • Identification of novel pathogens

The multifaceted nature of NGS applications underscores its indispensable role in contemporary biological research and its potential to further enhance our understanding of complex biological systems.

  • Q30 is a measure of sequencing quality, where a higher percentage of bases above Q30 indicates higher quality data.
  • Run time includes sample loading, sequencing, base calling, and data processing.
  • The latest version of the DNBSEQ-G400RS has reduced run times for PE100-FCL and PE150-FCL to 38 hrs and 56 hrs, respectively.


The Mechanism of Illumina Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS)

The Illumina NGS technology operates using a distinct methodology compared to the conventional Sanger chain-termination method. It employs the sequencing by synthesis (SBS) technology, which monitors the incorporation of labeled nucleotides while the DNA chain is replicated, in a highly parallel manner.

Next-generation sequencing produces extensive data on DNA sequencing, and it is both more cost-effective and less time-consuming than traditional Sanger sequencing. Illumina sequencing systems can generate data outputs ranging from 300 kilobases up to multiple terabases in a single run, depending on the type and configuration of the instrument.
