Nucleic acid sequencing is becoming more and more important due to its potential to provide solution to many of the solution sought in biology. Newer techniques for sequencing are being developed to improve speed and accuracy with better economy.
This also necessitates improvement in computing and analysis at hardware and software side. It is equally important to train human resource withy these newer technologies to understood it and to make efficient utilisation in their research programmes.
The book covers important sequencing technologies prevalent in India. The application specialists from respective companies contributed chapters. The different applications are dealt with by the technocrats in their field of expertise. (jacket)
