  Genome Sequencing
DNA sequencing, the process of determining the exact order of the 3 billion chemical building blocks (called bases and abbreviated A, T, C, and G) that make up the DNA of the 24 different human chromosomes, was the greatest technical challenge in the Human Genome Project.
Automated sequencers analyze the resulting electropherograms, and the output is a four-color chromatogram showing peaks that represent each of the four DNA bases.
This repeated sequencing is known as genome "depth of coverage." Draft sequence data are mostly in the form of 10,000 basepair-sized fragments whose approximate chromosomal locations are known.

Each base-specific sequencing reaction terminated with the short termination mix is loaded using a mouth pipette onto a 0.15 mm X 50 cm X 20 cm, denaturing 5% polyacrylamide gel and electrophoresed for 2.25 hours at 22 mA.
One of the major problems in DNA cycle sequencing is that when fluorescent primers (1) are used the reaction conditions are such that the nested fragment set distribution is highly dependent upon the template concentration in the reaction mix.
Sequencing with these primers results in a long poly(T) ladder followed by a sequence which is difficult to read.

Despite modern technology, the principles remain unchanged: sequencing records a musician’s performance (the notes and their timing), not the actual sound of the music.
The earliest sequencing device used in electronic music was the step sequencer, as used in conjunction with a voltage controlled synthesiser.
Sequencing software allowed the musician to record a real-time keyboard performance as a sequence in the computer.

We recognize the needs of the growing number of mothers who move in and out of paid employment and/or opt for a variety of flexible work arrangements in order to successfully balance their work and family responsibilities.
This fluid work pattern, which occurs over a number of years and at various stages of motherhood, is known as “sequencing”.
Regardless of the many individual ways to combine paid employment and motherhood, sequencing women are united by common experiences – which include, either by choice or necessity, adapting their work arrangements to better accommodate the responsibilities of family care.

 Sequencing
I believe that sequencing is also easier with three kinds of "knowing" firmly in place: know yourself, know your partner, and know your children.
Finally, if possible, consider another sequencing technique often associated with weaning: "don't offer, don't refuse." This frees you to stay open to possibilities that may present themselves without pressure to pursue paid employment.
Remember that few, if any, employment decisions are irreversible and that the road to successful sequencing is likely to be lined with detours, unexpected curves, and even an occasional dead end.

 Automated DNA Sequencing
Automated DNA sequencing utilizes fluorescent tracers instead of radioisotopes to label the DNA, thereby eliminating or significantly reducing the use of radioactive materials in some research laboratories.
DNA sequencing is achieved by utilizing labeled nucleotides for incorporation into a copy of a piece of DNA.
It is important to note that factors that tend to increase the costs of manual DNA sequencing (e.g., the long operation time; associated tasks and personal protection required for working with radioactive material) are not included in the costs of automated DNA sequencing.
