Next Generation Sequencing (NGS)

Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) is a DNA sequencing technology that has wide applications. The advent of NGS has accelerated medical research and discovery. It is used to detect mutation and genetic disorders.

NGS can help diagnose various diseases including cancer. It helps determine the exact cause and nature of the disease; this information aids in the healing process. NGS has taken us a step closer to personalized medicines and their increased benefits. NGS provides abundant information which is beyond the capacity of conventional sequencing technologies.
