Next Generation Imaging

Project description

The next generation of 'next generation' sequencing methods is on the horizon

The sequence of nucleotides in DNA reveals information about genes, chromosomes and even an entire genome. High-throughput 'next generation' sequencing methods have now made it possible to sequence the human genome in a day. Contributing to the meteoric increase in our understanding of genetics and mutations in health and disease, the techniques face an important limitation. EU-funded scientists are addressing it, significantly enhancing the resolution of both spatial localisation and organisation of sequences within single cells in intact tissues. Combined with faster and more detailed analyses and a decrease in cost, the technology could spur a new age of discovery.
