The DNA sequencing process makes it possible for researchers to discover the amino-acid

May 28, 2010
The DNA sequencing process makes it possible for researchers to discover the amino acid sequence in a substance. Shown here is Step 1 in the process: The target material arrives from the researcher in a single container or multi-welled plate. It is transferred into eight-strip tubes and combined with fluorescent chemistry. [Image 1 of 5 related images. See Image 2.]

More about this Image The work pictured in this series of images was performed at the DNA Sequencing Facility at Virginia Tech. Several of the researchers at the facility are National Science Foundation grantees. University facilities such as this one make it possible for students and faculty to perform hands-on research work, make discoveries and earn awards and grants. (Year of image: 2000)
