Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) technology can be used to sequence entire genomes and for many other applications. This 3D animation shows the sequencing reaction steps at the molecular level. NGS methods produce massive amounts of data and this animation also gives an example of the bioinformatic steps needed to pinpoint mutations in tumor samples.
