June 14, 2006 | 454 Life Sciences has launched an updated version of the Genome Sequencer 20 System, which yields significant improvements in the way the system can be used and in the resulting data. Enhanced features include a single read accuracy of greater than or equal to 99 percent, which will increase the quality of consensus sequences and improve the confidence level of putative sequence deviations detected using heterozygote calling; software algorithms to enable additional applications resulting in improved assembly and contigging procedures allowing for the sequencing of hundreds of thousands of short DNA fragments.
