Paper Abstract

We have developed a unique prototype solid state digital imaging system for use in the analysis of one dimensional deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) sequencing gels. The system can be used to digitize, interpret and store DNA sequence information directly from an autoradiogram. The system consists of a two dimensional charge coupled device (CCD) imager, a multiplexing optical front end for reformatting of the gel image, a microcomputer host and a software package for reconstruction of the gel image and analysis of the DNA sequence.
