DNA sequencing: From the past to the next generation
Two decades after the discovery of DNA structure in 1953, scientists began to unravel our genes. In the late 1970s, Frederick Sanger developed the chain-termination sequencing protocol, a time-honored method that is still used today. Now, Next-Generation methods take synthesis-based sequencing to a whole new level! Read about Next-Generation sequencing technology used to study the ABCC6 gene, which causes PXE when mutated.
