In the ever-growing field of new DNA sequencing methods, it's a single-molecule world. By far the bulk of recent efforts to develop cheaper, faster genomic sequencing techniques have analyzed individual rather than populations of DNA molecules.
One of the latest contenders is Lübeck, Germany-based Genovoxx's AnyGene™ method
Other companies, such as UK-based Solexa, have adopted a similar strategy, but Christian Hennig, cofounder of Genovoxx, says that what makes the technology unique is its use of reversible terminators. These molecules, called AnyBase™ nucleotides, contain a cleavable disulfide bond attached to a...
