Abstract

The key advances in DNA diagnostics during the past year are techniques which will lead to advanced throughput without sacrificing sensitivity: miniaturization of samples to reduce material cost and preparation time, and parallelization through use of measurement arrays. The most promising gains have come in the areas of DNA arrays and mass spectrometry, where differential sequencing measurements are now possible.
