Abstract
THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROJECT IS TO DEVELOP A DNA SEQUENCING INSTRUMENT UTILIZING THE PYROPHOSPHATE-BASED METHOD OF DNA SEQUENCING. THIS IS A NEW METHOD THAT DOES NOT USE ELECTROPHORESIS, RADIOACTIVITY, OR FLUORESCENCE. THE METHOD WORKS BY MEASURING PYROPHOSPHATE GENERATED BY THE DNA POLYMERIZATION REACTION. THE PYROPHOSPHATE IS MEASURED CONTINUOUSLY BY A DEVICE CONSISTING OF A SERIES OF COLUMNS CONTAINING ENZYMES COVALENTLY ATTACHED TO A SOLIDSUPPORT. PHASE I WILL BE DEVOTED TO SOLVING THE REMAINING BIOCHEMICAL PROBLEMS ASSOCIATED WITH THE METHOD. IF THE METHOD IS DEMONSTRATED TO WORK WELL ENOUGH, PHASE II WILL CONSIST OF CONSTRUCTION OF A PROTOTYPE INSTRUMENT SUITABLE FOR LARGE-SCALE PRODUCTION.
