Sanger sequencing (chain termination method)
Pyrosequencing ("454 sequencing")
Pyrosequencing is a "sequence by synthesis" method developed by Mostafa Ronaghi and Pål Nyrén at the Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm. Sequences are determined by observation of light emission upon addition of a nucleotide complementary to the first unpaired nucleotide of the template.
Quote from Wikipedia:Pyrosequencing:
"ssDNA template is hybridized to a sequencing primer and incubated with the enzymes DNA polymerase, ATP sulfurylase, luciferase and apyrase, and with the substrates adenosine 5´ phosphosulfate (APS) and luciferin."
Sequencing proceeds as follows:
- Addition of one of the four dNTPs (dATPαS is substituted for ATP, as the former is not a substrate for luciferase). If the dNTP is complementary, DNA polyerase incorporates the nucleotide, releasing pyrophosphate (PPi).
- ATP sulfurylase catalyzes reaction of PPi and adenosine 5' phosphosulfate to create ATP
- ATP fuels luciferase-catalyzed conversion of luciferin to oxyluceferin, generating visible light.
- Unincorporated nucleotides and ATP are degraded by apyrase.
454 sequencing performs massively parallel pyrosequencing. Library DNA containing adapter sequences are adsorbed to DNA-capturing beads. The DNA bound to each bead is then amplified by emulsion-PCR, in which the beads with bound DNA are mixed with PCR reagents and emulsion oil to create a water-in-oil emulsion containing many "microreactors" consisting of beads sorrounded by water. Following PCR amplification, the DNA-binding beads are isolated and deposited into the wells of a microtiter plate. Beads with pyrosequencing enzymes are then added to the plate. Finally, the pyrosequencing is performed, processing the plate in a sequencing machine. 400 000+ DNA fragments/beads can be processed per plate.
Using "multiplex identifiers", different genomic libraries can be bar-coded, facilitating sequencing of several libraries in the same sequencing run.

Single molecule real time sequencing (Pacific Biosciences)
Microscopical wells on a chip (zero-mode waveguides) each contain a single DNA polymerase enzyme bound to the bottom of the well, which accept a single DNA molecule as template. Fluorescent labelled dNTPs are used for DNA synthesis. Upon incorporation of a dNTP, the fluorescence tag is cleaved from the nucleotide and diffuses from the observation area within the ZMW. The sequence is determined optically by observing incorporation events.
SOLiD sequencing (Applied Biosystems)
DNA nanoball sequencing
Targeted "capturing kits" may be used to sequence a subset of genomic DNA. The human exome (as defined by the Consensus CDS (CCDS) project) totals about 38 Mb, covering about 1.22 % of the human genome
