We present an enabling advance in single molecule genomics with the potential to place mapping and next-generation sequencing on the same accelerated technological growth curves. Key results include close to single base pair (¿bp¿) resolution in sizing PCR amplicons, ultra-fine mapping of short sequences on long-PCR molecules from the BRCA1 locus (e.g., 12,900 bp long), and a cost-scalable instrument using commercial DVD player parts.
