Role of Microfluidics in Targeted Next Generation Sequencing

Role of Microfluidics in Targeted Next Generation Sequencing

Sequencing has created a lot of buzz in the last few decades and now is a big industry with many commercially available machines that can sequence genes ranging from few to billions of bases. On the other hand, several microfluidic platforms have been developed to improve the sequencing technology1,2 ranging from sample enrichment to the final read of the gene sequence, with many of them being commercialized. Sample enrichment is one of the major requirements for sequencing, its efficiency is very important which can be achieved by microfluidic approaches1. This article emphasizes that microfluidics is vital for the development of advanced DNA sequencing techniques, for instance, Targeted-Next Generation Sequencing (NGS). (more…)
