  • Tech Summary: Animated video explaining Helicos tSMS Next-gen Technology

    I don't know if anyone is interested, but I came across a video made by Helicos posted to Youtube. The video does a decent job of explaining next-gen sequencing, with relatively decent animation, and can be used in a pinch to explain some of the concepts to an audience that isn't familiar with the next-gen concepts.

    (Update: it was made private on Youtube, but you can still see it on the Helicos web page here. The flv file is located here.)

    Too bad Illumina doesn't have an equivalent video.

    Hey Anthony, I moved this to its own thread so it would get more views. Hope that's ok!

      Of course! It is your board, after all! (-;

      Anyhow, I'd reiterate that I don't know how useful the video is, as it has the feel of a marketing video (which it probably is), but it's a great introduction.

      I was planning on using it tomorrow (without audio) to provide a visual aid while introducing some high school kids to the general idea of next-gen sequencing. (Maybe we should have a contest on who can provide the best narration track for it, but I digress..)

        You've seen this from Illumina, right?

          Thanks, I had seen that. I think Helicos' video is able to inspire students with their graphics, giving a sense of scale and work flow at a high level, rather than the technical details shown in the Illumina animation.

          I should be clearer, though: I wish Illumina had a "cool looking" animation that really gets their message across to non-scientists.

          Thanks for sharing the link, though - we should collect other next-gen sequencing videos in this thread, as a reference!

            If you want to see another NGS videos, I have found any. Maybe you know them, but I hope, it will be usefull for you. I don`t know, if the links shouldn`t be in different threats... This is my first post, so please, be tolerant. :-)

              Hey thanks, anuskap. I won't have a chance to check them out today. (To much coding to do...) But I'll definitely have a look over the weekend.

                  Hey guys,

                  i just found this thread after doing a video search and these videos and links have done exactly what you hoped they would. For a young student still getting a grip on the whole system this is incredible. The Helicos video blows my mind, and hopefully this thread bump gives it an opportunity to blow a few more. Learning the scientific methods really gives me a much better idea of what goes in to developing products such as a rapid prototype involving casting or molding.

                    A Brief Overview and Common Challenges in Single-cell Sequencing Analysis
                    by seqadmin


                    ​​​​​​The introduction of single-cell sequencing has advanced the ability to study cell-to-cell heterogeneity. Its use has improved our understanding of somatic mutations1, cell lineages2, cellular diversity and regulation3, and development in multicellular organisms4. Single-cell sequencing encompasses hundreds of techniques with different approaches to studying the genomes, transcriptomes, epigenomes, and other omics of individual cells. The analysis of single-cell sequencing data i...

                    Introduction to Single-Cell Sequencing
                    by seqadmin
                    Single-cell sequencing is a technique used to investigate the genome, transcriptome, epigenome, and other omics of individual cells using high-throughput sequencing. This technology has provided many scientific breakthroughs and continues to be applied across many fields, including microbiology, oncology, immunology, neurobiology, precision medicine, and stem cell research.

                    The advancement of single-cell sequencing began in 2009 when Tang et al. investigated the single-cell transcriptomes

                    AVITI from Element Biosciences: Latest Sequencing Technologies—Part 6
                    by seqadmin
                    Element Biosciences made its sequencing market debut this year when it released AVITI, its first sequencer. The AVITI System uses avidity sequencing, a novel sequencing chemistry that delivers higher quality data, decreases cycle times, and requires lower reagent concentrations. This new instrument reportedly features lower operating and start-up costs while maintaining quality sequencing.
