Next generation sequencing technologies and applications for human Genetic History and Forensics
2011 (English)In: Investigative Genetics, ISSN 2041-2223, Vol. 2, no 1, 23- p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
The rapid advances in the development of sequencing technologies in recent years enable an increasing number of applications in biology and medicine. Here we review key technical aspects of the preparation of DNA templates for sequencing, the biochemical reaction principles and assay formats underlying next generation sequencing systems, methods for imaging and base calling, quality control, and bioinformatic approaches for sequence alignment, variant calling and assembly. We also discuss some of the most important advances that the new sequencing technologies have brought to the fields of human population genetics, human genetic history and forensic genetics.
