Applied Biosystems is one of the various brands under the Life Technologies brand of Thermo Fisher Scientific corporation.
DNA sequencing is the process of determining the precise order of nucleotides within a DNA molecule.
Polony sequencing is an inexpensive but highly accurate multiplex sequencing technique that can be used to “read” millions of immobilized DNA sequences in parallel.
Pyrosequencing is a method of DNA sequencing (determining the order of nucleotides in DNA) based on the "sequencing by synthesis" principle, in which the sequencing is performed by detecting the nucleotide incorporated by a DNA polymerase.
Sequencing by ligation is a DNA sequencing method that uses the enzyme DNA ligase to identify the nucleotide present at a given position in a DNA sequence.
Single molecule real time sequencing (SMRT) is a parallelized single molecule DNA sequencing method.
