Since the discovery of DNA in 1869, the development of classical genetics and research of how our bodies work have all led us to this point in human history where we are competent enough to completely sequence all the genes in a living body. The nature of any biological inquiry has now been transformed by the high throughput sequencing technologies to generate genome scale data sets. Based on Sanger’s founding discovery of DNA sequencing, next generation DNA sequencing platforms are rapidly evolving to exem-plify an elegant interplay between biology and technology. Over the past few years, second and third generation sequencing tech-nology has dramatically accelerated the comprehensive analysis of biological and biomedical research. This review enlists a short summary of second and third generation sequencing technologies with an overview of the advances in the sequencing platforms.
