    Sorry, I didn't mean it as a flame. :-)

    Just for the record I'm using "Sanger" as the tag for the sanger sequencing method, although it's a bit generic as it'd catch ABI capillary, licor, megabace etc. They all share similar properties as far as error models go so I think it's sufficient.

    It would be good to get these codified in the SAM spec though.

    However "all three" is already a fail. I can think of (in order of age) capillary/sanger, 454, illumina, solid, not to mention prototypes from new instruments.

    Although 1000 Genomes has not used any capillary data, we do have quite a few mixed assemblies here with old Sanger sequencing data augmented with a mix of newer technologies.

    Hey now, I meant all three as in all three you mentioned. Don't spark a flame.

    Check out the headers used in the 1000 Genomes Project. They should have all three technologies represented.

    The SAM read group header line (RG) has a PL tag defined as "platform/technology used to produce the read". It doesn't list a controlled vocabulary.

    Hunting through the GATK source code I see cases where it checks for "ILLUMINA", "solid" and "LS454" - in those uppercase/lowercase manners. Is this as about official as it gets? Is there a more complete list or synonyms anywhere?

    Ideally this should become an official controlled vocabulary.
