Rubber Board Launches High Quality Sanger DNA Sequencing Service

It is one of the best methods for determining the nucleotide sequence of DNA and has been the DNA sequencing powerhouse since its invention in the 1970s. Because of its high accuracy of 99.99 percent, it is regarded as the gold standard in sequencing.

The Rubber Board's Rubber Research Institute of India (RRII) has launched a high-quality Sanger DNA Sequencing Service. Because of its suitability for routine validation of single genes or short DNA fragments, Sanger sequencing is widely used by biotechnology researchers and the industry.

It is one of the best methods for determining the nucleotide sequence of DNA and has been the DNA sequencing powerhouse since its invention in the 1970s. Because of its high accuracy of 99.99 percent, it is regarded as the gold standard in sequencing.

The technique has been widely applied in the fields of functional and comparative genomics, evolutionary genetics, and complex disease research.

According to a press release from Rubber Board, the service is available to researchers, students, and private businesses. The ABI 3500XL 24 Capillary Electrophoresis System will be used to sequence column-based purified PCR products and plasmid DNA samples. DNA sequencing read lengths of up to -1000 bases will be provided.

The order of the four nucleotides (building blocks) of the DNA molecule is provided by the DNA sequence. The arrangement, or sequence, of these blocks, instructs your cells on how to behave.

The determination of the DNA sequence is a fundamental and preliminary requirement of any molecular biology research. The ability to determine the DNA sequence laid the groundwork for modern biology and revolutionized the biotechnology industry (clinical, industrial and basic science).

The DNA sequence reports will be sent via email by the board. Online orders can be placed by completing the sample submission form.

About Sanger DNA Sequencing:

  • The process of determining the sequence of nucleotides (As, Ts, Cs, and Gs) in a piece of DNA is known as DNA sequencing.

The target DNA is copied many times in Sanger sequencing, resulting in fragments of varying lengths. The ends of the fragments are marked with fluorescent "chain terminator" nucleotides, allowing the sequence to be determined.
