Next Generation Sequencing demystifies the process of sequencing with a hands-on approach. Offering a theoretical and practical discussion of the how and why behind the kit culture, this publication instructs readers on the science behind the technology and the analysis and application of data. The primer includes a needed pros-and-cons list, protocols, and a discussion of implementing applications.

Filling the gap in next generation sequencing literature, Next Generation Sequencing: A Primer provides needed instruction for early researchers, students and researchers outside of their expertise across the biological and biomedical sciences.
