Sequencing technologies are improving rapidly, however.
Sequencing didn’t provide an immediate diagnosis, but it did narrow the search to around 20 genes – one of which was PURA.
More broadly, the COVID-19 pandemic has made sequencing of RNA and proteins top of mind in the healthcare industry, he said.
We have done nearly half of the entire world’s genome sequencing, which is how we know what is going on with the Kent variant.”
The pandemic has also demonstrated the value of gene-sequencing technologies.
It also meant that COG-UK’s member institutions already had sequencing infrastructure in place when covid hit.
Because it relies on electronics rather than optics, nanopore sequencing promises faster, cheaper sequencing.
The applications of next-generation sequencing technologies are vast, owing to their relatively low cost and large-scale high-throughput capacity.
Major additions in the first quarter of this year included the flash-storage company Pure Storage and 10x Genomics, which makes gene-sequencing technology.
Although the development of gene sequencing was revolutionary to the genomics space, it was mostly used by researchers and academia because of its high cost.
The two projects based on deep coverage, which enhanced the ability to detect low-frequency mutations, involved genome sequencing of a small number of trios (a…
We visit a genome sequencing lab where advances in computer power and sequencing technology are making it possible to collect genomic data faster than ever.
DNA sequencing methods, including whole genome sequencing and multilocus sequence analysis (MLSA), likewise have proved useful in the identification of bacteria.
Next-generation sequencing enables hundreds of thousands to millions or billions of these DNA-sequencing reactions to be performed simultaneously, massively speeding up the process.
Particularly important was the development of automated sequencing machines that employed fluorescence instead of radioactive decay for the detection of the sequencing reaction products.
Future work will continue to focus on speeding up the analysis and supporting the exploration of ever greater numbers of ever larger microbiome sequencing samples, fueled by the continuing decrease in the price of sequencing.
"Even though there is increased transmissibility demonstrated by some preliminary studies, we need much more information about this virus variant in this lineage, in all of the sublineages, so we need more sequencing, targeted sequencing to be done."
Assembly of whole genome shotgun sequencing data was difficult and required sophisticated computer programs and powerful supercomputers, and, even in the years following the completion of the HGP, whole genome shotgun sequence assembly remained a significant challenge for whole genome sequencing projects.
Professor Sir Mike Stratton, Director of the Wellcome Sanger Institute, added: “In response to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, the Sanger Institute will deploy its large-scale sequencing platform alongside regional sequencing centres to support UK Public Health Agencies, regional NHS centres and several universities to better understand the coronavirus outbreak in the UK.
It is safe to say that without the HGP (and subsequent initiatives such as the Advanced Sequencing Technology Awards created in 2004 by the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) (NIH 2004)) there wouldn’t have been such a rapid development in next-generation sequencing (NGS) approaches and the cost of whole genome sequencing would not have dropped as quickly as it has (see Mardis 2011 for a review of the development of NGS).
