The Genome Analyzer System is a groundbreaking platform for sequence analysis and functional genomics. Dramatically improving speed and reducing costs, it is suitable for a range of applications including whole-genome and candidate-region sequencing, gene expression discovery and profiling, DNA-protein interaction profiling, and small RNA identification and quantitation. Leveraging proprietary reversible terminators and clonal single molecule array technology, the Illumina Genome Analyzer System can generate several billion bases of data per run, and in the process transform the way many experiments are devised and carried out. The Illumina Genome Analyzer System is ideal for genome-scale as well as targeted sequencing projects. This platform allows researchers to economically sequence a human genome in a matter of weeks.
