Applied Biosystems publishes DNA sequencing paper

7th January 2010

Applied Biosystems has announced the publication of a paper that demonstrates the power of next-generation DNA sequencing in the identification of DNA mutations in a small cell lung cancer line.

In a recent statement, the company – which is part of Life Technologies – said that the paper also shows the power of sequencing in spotting the mutational burden that is associated with tobacco smoking.

Published in the journal Nature, the research was co-authored by Applied Biosystems and researchers from the Wellcome Trust Cancer Institute.

Kip Miller, president of genetic systems at Life Technologies, commented: “This paper emphasises the power that next-generation sequencing, such as Applied Biosystems’ SOLiD System, has to improve science’s understanding of disease and its potential to develop better diagnostics and therapeutic treatment.”

Life Technologies was created in November 2008 when Applied Biosystems merged with Invitrogen.
