The 454 technology is the first next-generation sequencing technology released to the market. This refers to a method of high throughput massively parallel next-generation sequencing (NGS). The 454 method anchors the DNA to resin beads, allowing it to read a sequence much fast than capillary sequencing. It can read one gigabase (1/3 of the human genome) in a single day.
