Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Whole genome sequencing, is a laboratory process that determines the complete DNA sequence of an organism's genome at a single time. This entails sequencing all of an organism's chromosomal DNA as well as DNA contained in the mitochondria and, for plants, in the chloroplast. Almost any biological sample-even a very small amount of DNA or ancient DNA-can provide the genetic material necessary for full genome sequencing. Such samples may include saliva, epithelial cells, bone marrow, hair, seeds, plant leaves, or anything else that has DNA-containing cells. Because the sequence data that is produced can be quite large, genomic data is stored electronically and requires a large amount of computing power and storage capacity. Full genome sequencing would have been nearly impossible before the advent of the microprocessor, computers, and the Information Age.show more
