Default can some one introduce me to next generation sequencing??

Hello Everybody,

I'm new to this field. and feel gr8 to be part of this forum.

Can anyone tell me about the existing sequencers platforms available? How does the data generated from different sequencers differ?

What really the next generation sequencing aims at?

well, although there is google, it would be pretty useful to put several links about general introduction for the technologies in a thread to the top of this "General" forum as "important" for the newbies...

i can think at least those topics are needed for a newbie:
1. how those technologies work and their history or so
2. a comparison concerning quantity, quality, time consumption, cost...
3. how to analyze the sequences
