Caption: Polymerase colony gene sequencer. This machine, developed by George Church and Robi Mitra from Harvard University, USA, is known as a 'polonator'. It is a sequencer that attaches DNA molecules to beads. The DNA is amplified and processed into polymerase colony units, also known as a 'polony'. These seperate units are easier to sequence and analyse, which allow for faster and cheaper genome sequencing. The polonator contains an objective lens surrounded by a ring of LED lights (upper middle) which searches for the beads in the circular wells below it.
