DNA sequencing Videos.
At any rate, I decided I'd collect a few videos to illustrate each one. For Sanger, there are a LOT of videos, many of which are quite excellent, but I only wanted one. (Sorry if I didn't pick yours.) For second and third generation DNA sequencing videos, the selection kind of flattens out, and two of them come from corporate sites, rather than youtube - which seems to be the general consensus repository of technology videos.
Personally, I find it interesting to see how each group is selling themselves. You'll notice some videos press heavily on the technology, while others focus on the workflow.
As an aside, I also find it interesting to look for places where the illustrations don't make sense... there's a lovely place in the 454 video where two strands of DNA split from each other on the bead, leaving the two full strands and a complete primer sequence... mysterious! (Yes, I do enjoy looking for inconsistencies when I go to the movies.)
Ok, get out your popcorn.
