  • Published 2004 in Advances in Computers


Shotgun sequencing is the most widely used technique for determining the DNA sequence of organisms. It involves breaking up the DNA into many small pieces that can be read by automated sequencing machines, then piecing together the original genome using specialized software programs called assemblers. Due to the large amounts of data being generated and to… (More)
