Sydney Brenner: DNA sequencing by stepwise ligation and cleavage. Spectragen, Stephen C Macevicz, February 4, 1997: US05599675 (82 worldwide citation)

The invention provides a method of nucleic acid sequence analysis based on repeated cycles of ligation to and cleavage of probes at the terminus of a target polynucleotide. At each such cycle one or more terminal nucleotides are identified and one or more nucleotides are removed from the end of the ...
