1986 Abstract: Genomic Sequence Comparisons
The project objective is to implement new ideas for rapid, precise, and interpretable DNA sequencing. The approach consists of (1) multiplex sequencing, (2) subtractive sequencing, (3) comparisons between species, and (4) automation of filter hybridization, sequence data reading, and clone walking. Results include: (1) a full test of multiplexing, demonstrating nine reprobings without signal losses and sequencing 80 random oligonucleotides similar to those of the subtractive approach; and (2) a preliminary digital analysis of several sequence films. Expected results include nearly complete sequences for two bacterial genomes (10 Mbp total), estimates of the background levels of cross hybridizations in the subtractive and walking strategies, and a determination of the parameters that can minimize such effects.
