Genomics, the study of an organism’s full genetic complement, relies on recombinant DNA, DNA sequencing, and bioinformatics to sequence and analyze genomes. Genomics technologies have evolved significantly since the Sanger sequencing technique was established in the 1980s. The development of next-generation sequencing (NGS) technologies led to dramatic improvements in speed, and third generation sequencing technologies can produce significantly longer reads. Choosing the right genomics technologies, including automated liquid handling devices and thermal cyclers, will enhance your ability to sequence and analyze genomes with speed and accuracy.
