Impact of Nucleic Acid Sequencing on Viroid Biology

The early 1970s marked two breakthroughs in the field of biology: (i) The development of nucleotide sequencing technology; and, (ii) the discovery of the viroids. The first DNA sequences were

Whole-genome sequencing of eukaryotes: From sequencing of DNA fragments to a genome assembly

TLDR
This review discusses the key technologies for the genome sequencing and the de novo assembly, as well as different approaches to improve the quality of existing drafts of genome sequences.

LUCS: a high-resolution nucleic acid sequencing tool for accurate long-read analysis of individual DNA molecules

TLDR
A new technology termed LUCS (Long-molecule UMI-driven Consensus Sequencing), in which reads from third-generation sequencing are aggregated by unique molecular identifiers specific for each individual DNA molecule, which enables in-silico reconstruction of highly accurate consensus reads of each DNA molecule independent of other molecules in the sample.

Restriction enzymes and their use in molecular biology: An overview

TLDR
The history of restriction enzymes is celebrated in the light of their many different uses, as these proteins have accompanied the history of DNA for over 50 years representing active witnesses of major steps in the field.

A crash course in sequencing for a microbiologist

TLDR
This review will discuss applications of high-throughput methods to study bacteria in a much broader context than simply their genomes to lead to the reconstruction of regulatory networks within bacterial cells that allow communicating with the environment (signalome and interactome) and virtual cell reconstruction.

Nanopore Sequencing and its Application in Biology

Nanopore sequencing is a third generation sequencing technique. It involves the electrophoretic transport of nucleic acids through the protein channels of nanometer size, called nanopores, followed

Sequence information can be obtained from single DNA molecules

TLDR
These experiments show that one can study the activity of DNA polymerase at the single molecule level with single base resolution and a high degree of parallelization, thus providing the foundation for a practical single molecule sequencing technology.

DNA sequencing: bench to bedside and beyond†

TLDR
New ‘massively parallel’ sequencing methods are greatly increasing sequencing capacity, but further innovations are needed to achieve the ‘thousand dollar genome’ that many feel is prerequisite to personalized genomic medicine.

The complete genome of an individual by massively parallel DNA sequencing

TLDR
This sequence was completed in two months at approximately one-hundredth of the cost of traditional capillary electrophoresis methods and demonstrated the acquisition of novel human sequence, including novel genes not previously identified by traditional genomic sequencing, which is the first genome sequenced by next-generation technologies.

Molecular Structure of Nucleic Acids: A Structure for Deoxyribose Nucleic Acid

TLDR
The determination in 1953 of the structure of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA), with its two entwined helices and paired organic bases, was a tour de force in X-ray crystallography and opened the way for a deeper understanding of perhaps the most important biological process.
