  • (newbie question) What is the diff on shotgun method and the other methods?

    As in the title.

    What is the diff on the shotgun sequencing method and other methods (Sanger, or NGS)?

    Thanks.

      I think you are confused about some basic terminology. Shotgun is a sequencing strategy. Sanger or NGS are sequencing methodologies (though "NGS" is a generic term which encompasses several different technologies). The shotgun strategy may be carried out using many different methodologies/technologies, including the two you have listed.

      GenoMax is correct. There are several very good introductory tutorials about sequencing strategies and technologies a mere Google search away. It wouldn't be useful to simply repeat here what is already well described elsewhere.

        Thanks, I went to Shotgun wiki page. So many terminologies get me lost there...

          Thanks a lot. The answer is quite clear and straightforward.

            Exploring the Dynamics of the Tumor Microenvironment
            by seqadmin




            The complexity of cancer is clearly demonstrated in the diverse ecosystem of the tumor microenvironment (TME). The TME is made up of numerous cell types and its development begins with the changes that happen during oncogenesis. “Genomic mutations, copy number changes, epigenetic alterations, and alternative gene expression occur to varying degrees within the affected tumor cells,” explained Andrea O’Hara, Ph.D., Strategic Technical Specialist at Azenta. “As...

            Exploring Human Diversity Through Large-Scale Omics
            by seqadmin


            In 2003, researchers from the Human Genome Project (HGP) announced the most comprehensive genome to date1. Although the genome wasn’t fully completed until nearly 20 years later2, numerous large-scale projects, such as the International HapMap Project and 1000 Genomes Project, continued the HGP's work, capturing extensive variation and genomic diversity within humans. Recently, newer initiatives have significantly increased in scale and expanded beyond genomics, offering a more detailed...
