    I agree. It is so straight forward and easy to grasp which is okay from my side.

    our fund is only supported for one miseq, so it's hard to buy S5+ionchef. any information will be welcome, thanks!

    ps: like vehuardo said, the Life tech. did a good presentation that are impressive most of my collegues.
    You don't absolutely need the Chef. We have the PGM and the Proton, but no Chef, and we get along just fine. The Chef automates some things and saves time, but it's not necessary. I guess what I'm saying is that if you feel the S5 is the better instrument for your needs, but the cost of the S5+Chef is prohibitive, you can get just the OT2 and get along just fine.

    If you have small number of samples AND you need fast turnaround time, then Ion Torrent. Otherwise, MiSeq.

    If you are doing pure research, then turnaround time shouldn't be a concern, then obviously MiSeq.

    I've done a price/technology comparison of Illumina MiSeq and IonTorrent PGM here. IMO it's got to be illumina...

    Where do you get the 40 GB of data figure?

    I agree that it's not really 'out' yet - so far the 40Gb claim comes from ONT but not any end users. I think this is from the MkI version that maybe isn't quite yet available to MAP participants. Does anyone have the latest 'real world' results from MAP participants? Last I saw was still sub-Gb per run.

    Hopefully ONT will reveal more at their "London Calling" event (and hopefully some attendees with tweet about it or post the info here...)

    Hi tracer,

    You are using PGM for bacterial identification? which gene target are you using? Are you using non-16S gene as well? or you using 16S with different V regions? what is your primer set to identify bacteria? What is your turnaround time for bacterial ID?
    Thanks

    Updates on Illumina vs IonTorrent

    a must read: http://omicsomics.blogspot.se/2015/0...uzz-again.html


    I have to agree with Keith here, I would love to hear some company giving Illumina a run for their money. The problem I see with torrent is that they made too many promises and failed to deliver, badly. Now they are restricted to a few niche markets, but is this enough to sustain development at the level needed to compete with Illumina?

    Thanks Tracer,

    This answers all my questions. Brilliant!

    Regarding this:

    "Bottom line:
    If you have a large volume of samples that arrive continuously (so you can maximize the throughput of the MiSeq) and turnaround time is not a critical aspect, the MiSeq is probably the better choice. If you have a varying amount of samples that need to be turned around quickly, you are better of with a PGM"

    .. I guess we have a little bit of both, so we have to choose whats most important. Or buy both...

    Cheers,

    Vegard

    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...
