Next Generation Sequencing

In the Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) simulation, you will obtain a hair sample from an ancient man from Greenland, extract his DNA, and perform DNA sequencing. The NGS technology uses second-generation DNA sequencing, where users perform sequencing of many samples at the same time, also known as massive parallel sequencing. NGS has many real –life application scenarios. In this lab specifically, you will use SNP (Single Nucleotide Polymorphism) analysis to correlate the result with physical appearance such as hair baldness, earwax thickness and many others. By looking at the SNP result, you will learn how to reconstruct the physical appearance of the ancient man from Greenland.


At the end of this simulation, you will be able to…

• Understand the different steps in sample preparation, cluster generation, sequencing and data processing

• Understand the characteristics of ancient DNA

• Understand that Single Nucleotide Polymorphism (SNP) can be tightly correlated to a specific physical feature


Techniques In Lab: •Next generation sequencing
