DNA Sequencing TECHNIQUEDNA(template s(fluorescently tagged)dATPddATPdCTPddCTPdTTPddTTPdGTPddGTPP P PGOHP P PGH DNA replication in vitro using 1 of 4 different “chainterminating” dideoxynucleotides (ddNTPs) results in a set of DNA fragments ending in all positionswith A, C, G, or T that can be resolve by length on a gel
DNA Sequencing usesChain TerminatorsNormal nucleotide(dNTP)Dideoxynucleotide(ddNTP)*
DNA synthesis is carried out in reactionscontaining the following: DNA template to be sequenced dNTP’s DNA primer DNA polymerase ddATP, ddCTP, ddGTP or ddTTP each ddNTP is labeled with a differentfluorescent tagThe color reveals the identity of the ddNTP thatterminated DNA synthesis at each position,thus revealing the sequence!

What is “Recombinant DNA”?The joining of DNA from different sources.This can happen in nature (in vivo) the transfer of DNA involving bacteria or viruses or in the laboratory (in vitro) the cutting & splicing of DNA fragments bymolecular biologistsThe term “recombinant DNA” generally refers to the invitro kind which is commonly called “gene cloning”

Overview of PCREvery PCR reaction requires the following:1) source of target DNA template2) artificial primers “flanking” DNA of interest3) heat-stable DNA polymerase (from hyperthermophile)4) dNTP’s5) automated thermocycler to facilitate repeated: denaturation of DNA (separating the 2 strands) hybridization of primers to template DNA synthesisResulting PCR products can then beanalyzed by gel electrophoresis.

in situ Hybridization
in situ HybridizationHow is in situ hybridization carried out? fluorescently labeled anti-sense RNA probesadded to tissue sample hybridization with complementary mRNAsequences location of specific gene expression within thetissue (i.e., in situ) is revealed
DNA MicroarraysA DNA microarray is a solid surface containing aprecise array of single-stranded DNA sequencesfrom 1000s of different genes in an organism. labeled cDNA is produced from test cells andallowed to hybridize with sequences in thearray intensity of signals reveal expression ofspecific genes within the test cells.When cDNA from different sources is labeled differently,gene expression from each source can be compared in asingle microarray (as shown on the slide after next).

DNA Sequencing Troubleshooting Guide. There are a number of factors that can lead to less than perfect DNA sequencing results. In this guide, we explain some of the common problems encountered, and outline ways in which these problems can be overcome. Below is an example of a normal sequencing result. Shown here is the raw data signal
NA sequencing has two intertwined histories—that of the under - lying technologies and that of the breadth of problems for which it has proven useful. Here we first review major developments in the history of DNA sequencing technologies (Fig. 1). Next we consider the trajectory of DNA sequencing applications (Fig. 2). Finally, we discuss
