    Anyone taken the plunge and upgraded to Wildfire? We likely to be doing it in the next few months. PE 50bp by years end apparently.

    I spoke with an early adopter, they had 2 5500xl machines and updated 1 of them to wildfire and now no one uses the old one anymore and they can't wait to get the next one. Quality was as good as before, it runs faster and it is less work. So I'm really looking forward to playing with it myself. Sorry I don't have real data of any sorts.

    I think he said the three lanes offer the same output as do 6 lanes now so overall it is the same. Biggest con was that the readlength(for now) is only 50bp and PE is not possible yet. But they aim at reading the other strand instead of reading the same strand backwards, meaning they can achieve same read length reverse as forward in the same quality at the same speed.

    I think it'd be cooler if they offered an option between 3 or 6 lanes as different upgrade options. Something like a 5500 Wildfire (tm) and a 5500 Wildfire XL (tm). Who cares if the computer is bigger, the S4 had a cluster under it. I'd rather load all the projects on 12 lanes, then go on vacation while it runs for a month.

    Who's got early access? Anyone know?

    I heard something similar from the Lifetech France (although they are saying Sept for release). 69K euros, with specs along the lines mentioned by JPC. 5500 server needs to be updated (maybe included in the upgrade price?). I'd love to hear any comments re perforamce if there are any early access users out there???

    I've just been told by AB that here in the UK the WildFire upgrade will be available in July and cost £70K. That will give you 16Gb/day output but it won't do paired ends reads until Q4 when the output will go up to 20Gb/day.

    As run times will be increased they will limit you to 3 lanes per flow cell and they are suggesting a cost of US$25/Gb

    Anyone going to AGBT? According to the webinar there was going to be info about the release timeline updated there.

    I would assume so, this new system replaces the entire EZ bead prep, no more emPCR.

    So what does this mean for nanobeads ? Will this technology replace them ?

    I have heard it mentioned. It is similar to Bridge PCR, but different enough that ABI thinks it can win any infringement battles that Illumina launches against them. I would say the main issue is that this is little more than "vaporware" in all likelihood. My guess is that we will be looking at the same advertisement 1 year from now, similar to the timescales involved with roll out of the FLX+ technology from Roche.

    That said, it would be nice to move away from the bead work. If ABI pushed, I am sure they could launch the product in a timely manner. But will they?

    started a topic 5500 Wildfire

    5500 Wildfire

    Not as exciting as the Proton news but LifeTech have put out some brief info on the 5500 development roadmap.



    - 2 to 5 fold increase in density
    - reduced sample prep time
    - improved reverse reads
    - forward read length may increase towards 100bp

    has anyone heard any other info on this?

    The Impact of AI in Genomic Medicine
    by seqadmin



    Artificial intelligence (AI) has evolved from a futuristic vision to a mainstream technology, highlighted by the introduction of tools like OpenAI's ChatGPT and Google's Gemini. In recent years, AI has become increasingly integrated into the field of genomics. This integration has enabled new scientific discoveries while simultaneously raising important ethical questions1. Interviews with two researchers at the center of this intersection provide insightful perspectives into...

    Multiomics Techniques Advancing Disease Research
    by seqadmin


    New and advanced multiomics tools and technologies have opened new avenues of research and markedly enhanced various disciplines such as disease research and precision medicine1. The practice of merging diverse data from various ‘omes increasingly provides a more holistic understanding of biological systems. As Maddison Masaeli, Co-Founder and CEO at Deepcell, aptly noted, “You can't explain biology in its complex form with one modality.”
