Korean tiger whole-genome sequencing
In November, 2010, whole-genome sequencing has begun with the blood sample extracted from a Siberian tiger 'TaeGeuk' of Everland. DNA is extracted from the tiger’s blood and is randomly amplified to produce large-quantity genetic information. Afterwards, the genetic information is aligned in order to sequence the genome.
Application of de novo Sequencing method
"de novo" sequencing uses a next-generation genome analysis technique and production of a special library. Considering the repeated sequence of a genome, diverse genome libraries are built and maximum of 80x genome sequencing data are produced. "de novo" sequencing and analysis is figuring out a whole-genome sequence of a certain species. Considering the repeated sequence of a genome, diverse genome libraries are built and maximum of 80x genome sequencing data are produced. When the standard genome of a specific species is completed, it can be used in the future as a reference genome in analyzing the same species.
