North America to Dominate the Long Read Sequencing Market

Sat, 06 June 2020 4:52

The DNA sequencing technology has become indispensable in biological research, and numerous applied fields, such as medical diagnosis, biotechnology, forensic biology, virology, and medical genetics. The comparison of healthy and mutated DNA sequences aids in diagnosing various diseases, including cancer. Determining a simple method of DNA sequencing enables the implementation of faster and individualized medical treatment. The apparent long-read sequencing provides longer reads to overcome various computational difficulties surrounding the assembly of genomes, transcript reconstruction, and metagenomics, compared to current generation sequencing technologies.

Long read sequencing offers many advantages over short read or second-generation sequencing techniques, further driving the market growth. For instance, long reads generated by single-molecule real-time sequencing (SMRT) provides a comprehensive overview of the entire genome and is used to distinguish genetic and structural variants. In 2015, researchers estimated that long-read sequencing can be used to assemble umpteen bacterial and viral genomes. Apart from this, rising awareness about long read sequencing and increasing investments in R&D activities provide an impetus to the market growth.
