Sequencing occurs during the course of the experiment. DNA sequencing is the process of determining the nucleotide order of a given DNA fragment. Thus far, most DNA sequencing has been performed using the chain termination method developed by Frederick Sanger. This technique uses sequence-specific termination of a DNA synthesis reaction using modified nucleotide substrates. However, new sequencing technologies such as Pyrosequencing are generating the majority of data. [ http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/14755292 ]
