    I don't see it as myopic as just guides to understanding what niches the platform will probably fill; I agree that clinical apps (which put a high premium on speed) will dominate. There's also a huge opportunity for smaller genomics studies, given the smaller upfront cost & the fast turnaround.

    In the current form, the cost isn't competitive with Illumina or SOLiD if you really want to pile up reads and bases, such as for de novo sequencing, whole genome resequencing or transcriptome profiling. But, I agree that when they succeed at a few rounds of revisions (if I get my act together, tomorrow's blog post will cover this) it really will be serious competition in those areas with Illumina and SOLiD.

      Improved Targeted Sequencing: A Comprehensive Guide to Amplicon Sequencing
      by seqadmin



      Amplicon sequencing is a targeted approach that allows researchers to investigate specific regions of the genome. This technique is routinely used in applications such as variant identification, clinical research, and infectious disease surveillance. The amplicon sequencing process begins by designing primers that flank the regions of interest. The DNA sequences are then amplified through PCR (typically multiplex PCR) to produce amplicons complementary to the targets. RNA targets...

      Targeted Sequencing: Choosing Between Hybridization Capture and Amplicon Sequencing
      by seqadmin




      Targeted sequencing is an effective way to sequence and analyze specific genomic regions of interest. This method enables researchers to focus their efforts on their desired targets, as opposed to other methods like whole genome sequencing that involve the sequencing of total DNA. Utilizing targeted sequencing is an attractive option for many researchers because it is often faster, more cost-effective, and only generates applicable data. While there are many approaches...
