Next generation sequencing is defined as a process of DNA sequencing decide the exact order of nucleotides inside a DNA molecule. Next generation sequencing allows rapid sequencing and produces a million DNA molecules and RNA sequences using next generation sequencer. Next generation sequencing is a high throughput sequencing. Next generation sequencing includes various modern sequencing technologies like Illumina sequencing and Roche 454 sequencing. Next generation sequencing is not very costly and gives a high throughput for DNA sequencing compared to traditional Sanger’s sequencing method. Next generation sequencing applications are in the field of genetic disease research newborn sequencing metagenomics, personalized medicines, biological drug discovery, agriculture research, animal research and cancer research.Also identification of binding sites on transcriptional factor, non-coding RNA expression profiling and re- sequencing of targets are some more applications of next generation sequencing. 

Next Generation Sequencing Market: Dynamics
