Mitochondrial DNA Analysis at the FBI Laboratory
Chromatogram of DNA Sequence
The automated sequencing instrument generates a chromatogram showing the emission of the fluorescent dyes as they pass the detector in the instrument. The order of these dyes corresponds to the order of the bases in the DNA. Thus, a DNA sequence can be read straight from the chromatogram.
