While the shotgun strategy is crucial to the new company's plans, Venter points out that the automated DNA sequencing
machines just developed by Perkin-Elmer are equally important.
The system "fingerprints" infection-causing bacteria using automated DNA sequencing
, stores the resulting DNA sequences in a central database and analyzes the results using proprietary algorithms.
This collaboration led to a new product line for LI-COR for the commercialization of automated DNA sequencing
systems and eventually protein analysis and small animal imaging systems based on near-infrared fluorescence.
The latter samples are suitable for direct automated DNA sequencing
in high complexity testing hospital laboratories to improve patient care.
VGI develops, manufactures and markets high performance automated DNA sequencing
systems and complete kits for the analysis of genes linked to disease.
The genome of the isolate was analyzed for specific mutations in the pncA, oxyR, and gyrB genes by automated DNA sequencing
, polymerase chain reaction--restriction fragment length polymorphism (PCR-RFLP) technique, and spoligotyping as described previously (5,12-16).
The overall goal of this treatment was to make the template shorter after each step of automated DNA sequencing
The Company pioneered the development of several essential laboratory technologies, including automated DNA sequencing
, DNA synthesis, the polymerase chain reaction (PCR), and mass spectrometry.
These were chemiluminescent tagging of DNA; polymerase chain reaction (PCR)--the process for making numerous copies of a small stretch of DNA, and automated DNA sequencing
based on the other two technologies.
