Next generation sequencing
Next generation sequencing (NGS) is a new method for sequencing genomes at high speed, at low cost and with great accuracy. It is also known as second generation sequencing (SGS). For genetic genealogy purposes NGS is used for the BIG Y test from Family Tree DNA and the Comprehensive Y-DNA test from Full Genomes Corporation.
