1) Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) – An Introduction

What is Next Generation Sequencing?
➜ Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) is a powerful platform that has enabled the sequencing of thousands to millions of DNA molecules simultaneously. This powerful tool is revolutionizing fields such as personalized medicine, genetic diseases, and clinical diagnostics by offering a high throughput option with the capability to sequence multiple individuals at the same time.

➜ [0:35] Sanger Sequencing was developed in 1977, not 1900s
➜ [2:22] The video refers to an “Illumina MySeq” machine – the correct name of the machine is actually “Illumina MiSeq”
