NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) — As 454’s Genome Sequencer 20 enters more academic institutions and companies, pyrosequencing, the chemistry at its core, is becoming more widespread.
Now Mostafa Ronaghi, one of the inventors of this sequencing chemistry, wants to take pyrosequencing to the masses. His group at the Stanford Genome Technology Center at Stanford’s Medical School is working on a miniaturized DNA sequencer that will use pyrosequencing but will cost a fraction of 454’s instrument, which lists for $500,000.
