Next-Generation Sequencing in Oncology: A Clinical Laboratory's Perspective
By Yassmine Akkari, PhD, FACMG

Next-generation sequencing (NGS) is a breakthrough technology that renders decoding genetic information easier, faster, and less expensive than conventional methods such as Sanger sequencing. The process enables simultaneous and massively parallel analysis of genetic material from multiple patients across multiple genes in a single run. Whereas in the past few decades, it took several weeks, intensive labor, and high cost to sequence a single gene in one patient, NGS can achieve the same results with much less time, effort, and cost by sequencing many genes from many patients at one time.
