Solexa-Illumina Next Generation DNA Sequencing (NGS)

Solexa-Illumina Next Generation DNA Sequencing (NGS) is a technology that was co-invented by two Cambridge chemists – Sir Balasubramanian and Sir Klenerman. This technology revolutionised the large-scale genome sequencing by making the process faster, cheaper and more accurate. The genome sequencing is the process of determining the complete DNA sequence of an organism’s make-up. The two inventors were recently named as the winners of 2020 Millennium Technology Prize for this technology.
