  • {Discussion}Roche stop supporting the 454 platform by mid-2016

    Hi, I am a graduate student and I have just heard Roche stop supporting the 454 pyrosequencing platform by 2016. Our university has to buy another Next-gen sequencing platform.

    I was surprised. Does anyone know what happened? Two year ago, I think 454 pyrosequencing occupied >50% market. I don't think this is about business. Also, lots of publications use pyrosequencing

    Are they gonna develop new sequencing technologies? Is pyrosequencing a technological dead end? Is Illumina a good choice?

    Why is any technology killed off? It's been superseded - either on price or performance or both.

    According to Genomeweb, Illumina had 66% of the market in 2012:



    Roche's share was 8% at this point.

    I think you may have been a bit misled on their market penetration post PGM and post-MiSeq

      Exploring the Dynamics of the Tumor Microenvironment
      by seqadmin




      The complexity of cancer is clearly demonstrated in the diverse ecosystem of the tumor microenvironment (TME). The TME is made up of numerous cell types and its development begins with the changes that happen during oncogenesis. “Genomic mutations, copy number changes, epigenetic alterations, and alternative gene expression occur to varying degrees within the affected tumor cells,” explained Andrea O’Hara, Ph.D., Strategic Technical Specialist at Azenta. “As...

      Exploring Human Diversity Through Large-Scale Omics
      by seqadmin


      In 2003, researchers from the Human Genome Project (HGP) announced the most comprehensive genome to date1. Although the genome wasn’t fully completed until nearly 20 years later2, numerous large-scale projects, such as the International HapMap Project and 1000 Genomes Project, continued the HGP's work, capturing extensive variation and genomic diversity within humans. Recently, newer initiatives have significantly increased in scale and expanded beyond genomics, offering a more detailed...
