Fiber Optic Plate Applied In Gene Sequencing
DNA sequencing is the process of determining the precise order of nucleotides within a DNA molecule. It includes any method or technology that is used to determine the order of the four basesâ€”adenine, guanine, cytosine, and thymineâ€”in a strand of DNA
The Fiber Optic Plate (FOP) is an optical device consisting of millions of glass fibers of several micrometers in diameter, bounded parallel to one another. After corroded by acid on one surface, fiber optic plate can be used as the chip for gene sequencing.
