SOLiD Technology Overview

We utililize the Applied Biosystems SOLiD system, a next-generation sequencing platform, to perform massivley parallel sequencing of clonally-amplified DNA fragments.  The SOLiD sequencing method is based on sequencing by ligation of dye-labeled oligonucleotides.

Applied Biosystems SOLiD (Sequencing by Oligonucleotide Ligation Detection) is comprised of 4 parts.

  1. Library Preparation
  2. Emulsion PCR and Bead Enrichment Beads
  3. Bead Deposition
  4. Sequencing by Ligation and Data Analysis
