454 Sequencing: Science paper describes a novel, highly efficient method of sequencing ancient DNA
Date:9/27/2007

world.

This new method for preparing ancient DNA really unlocks the power of 454 Sequencing in the field of paleogenomics. explained Michael Egholm, Ph.D., vice president of research and development at 454 Life Sciences. While ultra-high throughput and ability to generate long, high-accuracy reads makes 454 Sequencing an obvious choice for ancient DNA sequencing, the limiting factor has always been obtaining enough high quality DNA to take advantage of the technology. The new protocol, along with 454 Sequencing, opens the door to sequence many ancient species."

454 Life Sciences develops and commercializes the innovative Genome Sequencer system for ultra-high-throughput DNA sequencing. Specific applications include de novo sequencing and re-sequencing of whole genomes, metagenomics, RNA analysis, and targeted sequencing of DNA regions of interest. The hallmarks of 454 Sequencing are its simple, unbiased sample preparation and long, highly accurate sequence reads, including paired reads. 454 Sequencing technology has enabled many peer-reviewed studies in diverse research fields such as: cancer research, infectious diseases research, drug discovery, marine biology, anthropology, paleontology, and many more.
