The study of the human genome, the molecule that contains all information necessary for life, is one of the major projects of the researchers at the Sequencing and Genotyping Platform.
The aim is to understand the action of genes contained in DNA, helping so to identify the cause of some major diseases. The possibility to study all the genes in human genome enables a new approach to biological research and to its clinical applications.
Researchers use advanced technologies such as massive sequencing of DNA using reversible terminator chemistry.
