Paired-end sequencing is defined as a process to sequence both ends of the fragment and to generate high sequence data. Paired-end sequencing detects the genomic rearrangement, repetitive sequence elements, gene fusion and novel transcripts. Since paired-end reads are more likely to align to a reference, the quality of the entire data set improves. All Illumina NGS (next-generation sequencing) systems are capable of paired-end sequencing. Paired-end DNA sequencing reads provide superior alignment across DNA regions containing repetitive sequences, and produce longer contigs for de novo sequencing by filling gaps in the consensus sequence.
