The Use of Robotic Workstations in DNA Sequencing

  • Alan T. Bankier
Part of the Methods in Molecular Biology™ book series (MIMB, volume 23)


With the advent of genome sequencing, a much greater impetus has taken effect in expanding the capabilities of DNA sequencing. This is necessary since present limitations make such projects very long term and very expensive. Although this drive shall inevitably bring about a revolution in DNA sequencing rates, it will almost certainly involve expensive equipment. These benefits are likely to only affect a few highly funded genome sequencing centers.
