DNA polymerase requires a primer that is base-paired to the DNA strand to be copied, and this is the starting point for DNA synthesis primer new DNA strand DNA polymerase

By adding ddNTP to the polymerase mixture, some of the new DNA strands will be terminated at each “N” base on the DNA For example, using ddTTP: One reaction is run for each of the 4 bases. Radioactive ATP is added to label all of the strands.

Unformatted text preview: The labeled DNA strands are separated on an acrylamide gel. In this method, 4 lanes are required for each DNA strand being sequenced. For one lane with ddCTP: Overall: A G C T A G C T What does a sequencing gel look like? Each set of sequencing reactions can only generate 50-200 bases depending. So how to sequence longer stretches of DNA? The DNA is cut up into smaller pieces which are sequenced and then analyzed for overlaps: The method has become more automated to allow for more rapid sequencing of longer DNA strands, including fluorescent dyes in the ddNTPs What does the data look like? More data:...
