Means for simultaneous parallel sequence analysis of a large number of biological polymer macromolecules. Apparatus and methods may use fluorescent labels in repetitive chemistry to determine terminal monomers on solid phase immobilized polymers. Reagents which specifically recognize terminal monomers are used to label polymers at defined positions on a solid substrate.
