Chloroplast genome sequencing using Solexa and SOLiD.

Next-generation sequencing technology enables rapid, inexpensive characterization of small genomes, but cannot easily deal with the highly complex genomes of most eukaryotes. However, the smaller organellar genomes can be isolated and sequenced, enabling these technologies to be applied to eukaryotic systems. Here we report the use of Solexa and SOLiD to sequence whole chloroplast genomes from several species from the Compositae (Asteraceae), the largest plant family. The advantages of each of these technologies is discussed, and several potential uses are examined.
