DNA sequencing is the process of determining the order of nucleotides on a segment of DNA. Cycle sequencing is a method used to increase the sensitivity of the DNA sequencing process and permits the use of very small amounts of DNA starting material. This is accomplished by using a temperature cycling process similar to that employed in the polymerase chain reaction.
