DNA Sequencing Market Overview and Introduction
DNA sequencing can be defined as the process of determining the sequence of nucleotides in a piece of the DNA. The process involves technologies which determine the order of four bases, viz., adenine, thymine, guanine, and cytosine. The advent of DNA sequencing techniques have significantly accelerated medical & biological research & discovery. This process is widely used for the purpose of determining sequence of genes, chromosomes or even an entire genome. DNA sequencing also acts as an effective tool for sequencing RNAs as well as proteins. Currently, DNA sequencing finds a broad range of application across diverse areas of biology such as anthropology, medicine, biotechnology, molecular biology, metagenomics, virology, and forensics among others.
The global DNA sequencing has been particularly driven by the advent of novel technologies, which have significantly reduced time associated with sequencing process. Moreover, growing application of sequencing processes for several clinical applications such as reproductive health, cancer, genetic disorders and other complex disorders, is anticipated to further contribute to the growth of the market in the coming years. Furthermore, development of low cost, high-throughput parallel sequencing technology, has generated rich data sets, that can be used to study & analyze several vital aspects, such as genetic disease risk, population diversity, treatment response, and human evolution. Although, introduction of latest technologies have significantly lowered prices associated with sequencing, but such costs need to decline further to enable its increased adoption. Similarly, ethical & social issues regarding security & privacy of genetics data generated of an individual, still remains a major source of concern.
