Guest blogger, Grace Kenney explores advanced techniques in the Meyers' Lab
in genome sequencing technologies over the past decade. Some of these more recent advances include Hi-C sequencing and ultra-long read sequencing technologies, both of which give scientists access to data, genomics, utilizing Hi-C sequencing to generate 3D models of how DNA is physically structured within plant cells of the greater duckweed Spirodela polyrhiza. Hi-C sequencing can be used, sequencing is a fairly recent advancement that captures interactions between and among DNA molecules
