A new apparatus for continuously detecting fluorescently labeled DNA fragments is based on infrared fluorescence technology. This technology combines state-of-the-art developments in chemistry, laser technology, and detection, while achieving improved reliability, sensitivity, and flexibility for applications including DNA sequencing. DNA molecules labeled(More)
A 4.3-kbp portion of the genome from the Chlorella virus, PBCV-1, has been cloned and sequenced. Minimally, five open reading frames (ORFs) were identified on this fragment. Transcriptional analysis indicates that each ORF encodes complex patterns of RNA. The total length of transcribed RNA exceeds that of the ORF indicating either post-transcriptional(More)
A method for sequencing DNA by using a difluoresceinated primer and laser excitation is described. Dideoxy protocols have been determined that provide sequences for 600 bases starting with base 1 with less than 1% error in a single load. Electrophoresis is at 20 W and the bands are detected 24 cm from the bottom of the loading well with a scanning(More)
Single molecule analysis of individual enzymes can require oriented immobilization of the subject molecules on a detection surface. As part of a technology development project for single molecule DNA sequencing, we faced the multiple challenges of immobilizing both a DNA polymerase and its DNA template together in an active, stable complex capable of highly(More)
