What type of data was obtained in Automated sequencing method. How was it different from the data obtained from Sanger’s method.

In Sanger’s sequencing method, data used to be collected on a gel. It was read manually.

As an enhancement, in automated dideoxy sequencing method, the data could be interpreted as a computer record. This record is based on light wavelength and intensity; each of the four bases, A,C, T, and G are assigned a specific color. These colors can be obtained in an electropherogram. This data/record is known as “DNA trace”.
