454 Life Sciences and Max Planck publish sequence of one million base pairs

f 454 Life Sciences. "We believe that the Neandertal genome promises to yield more insight into human biology than the sequencing of any individual human."

Due to contamination of fossil samples by microbial DNA, the task of sequencing the Neandertal genome is much more extensive than the task of sequencing the human genome. 454 Life Sciences' Genome Sequencer 20 System makes such an endeavor feasible by allowing approximately a quarter of a million single DNA strands from small amounts of bone to be sequenced in only about five hours by a single machine. The DNA sequences determined by the Genome Sequencer 20 System are 100-200 base pairs in length, which coincides neatly with the length of ancient DNA fragments.
