The next-generation DNA sequencing technologies are a powerful alternative to studies in structural and functional genomics. In plant genomics studies, the work with these new platforms has been used for the sequencing of transcripts, re-sequencing, and the de novo sequencing of plastid genomes. This research details the technological principles of the next-generation DNA sequencing platforms most used and reviews its application in structural and functional plant genomics.
