DNA sequencing. Researcher examining a flow cell from a benchtop high-throughput sequencing system (in background). This machine is used to determine the sequence of a DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) sample. The sample is loaded on to the flow cell and placed inside the machine. It is then amplified (copied many times) and sequenced. DNA sequencing determines the exact order of the four bases that make up a gene. Genes are regions of DNA that determine each cell's structure, function and behaviour.
