Section of genetic code; particular arrangement of nucleotides along a segment of DNA on a chromosome
A type of laboratory test method that rapidly sequences large amounts of DNA ; sequencing determines the order of DNA building blocks (nucleotides) in a person's genetic code. Changes in the building blocks ( mutations ) in the regions of DNA that are responsible for making proteins can lead to genetic disorders. Next-gen sequencing can look for...
