Color-blind method opens new doors in DNA sequencing

... green, yellow, and red. A common problem with the technique is that the color of light emitted by the dyes is similar. Even with complex computer programs to assist in deciphering the signals, this "cross-talk" between the dyes results in subtle variations that can cause nucleotides to be miscalled. The new ...

An HIV Protein Plays a Surprising Role in Gene Activation
