    Maybe they were shown the foils from AGBT 2011 :-)

    Either they release something, or risk losing funding from investors at this point. My bet is that they release the Minion sooner than the Gridion.

    A) 100%
    B) 75/25. Either they release something, or risk losing funding from investors at this point. My bet is that they release the Minion sooner than the Gridion.

    Hopefully they are not going to wait till illumina's "right to negotiate" expire at end of 2016?

    So.
    ASHG next week.
    Any care to give odds on ONT:
    A) Being present?
    B) Announcing anything? (Announcing no announcements does not count)

    To aid in your handicapping, a certain Clive Brown tweeted:
    Clive G. Brown ‏@Clive_G_Brown 9 Oct

    I've reluctantly rejoined twitter purely so that I can make one tweet - when the appropriate time arises ...
    Also, it appears the Minion is now sporting a new look.

    No argument there.

    We all hope they will stop the screening at some point and release the first product we can use.

    Just to note I added a clarification from Clive at the bottom of the post on that particular point...

    Perhaps not before this post.

    But now you can't be sure

    Waaaaaa we made promises we couldn't keep to get attention and funding...and now people expect us to keep them!

    Happy to eat words. Actually I love having my pessimism proven wrong.

    And I hope I'm not off Clive's list. I could do some long range clinical haplotyping pretty easily!

    “We didn’t even know that long reads were so important to people until after that AGBT presentation.”
    Really? I find that hard to believe.

    I should have been stalking the bar, apparently.

    What? You weren't out on the strand digging through sand like a madman?
