  • Advantages of third-generation

    Based on what's known today, what factors would enter into selecting the new PacBio analyzer versus, say, the HiSeq2000 for either whole genome or exome resequencing?

    From the specs I've seen, PacBio will not initially be cost-effective vs. HiSeq in those domains.

    Strengths for PacBio are very rapid turnaround, relatively simple sample prep, low cost per run (really "shot") and very long read lengths. In my mind, whole genome sequencing doesn't leverage any of those & quick back-of-envelope calculations put a PacBio human genome at many times an Illumina or SOLiD one.

      In short, my opinion one wouldn't choose one over the other. The PacBio, in my opinion, fills a different niche than the HiSeq2000/SOLiD4/etc. Therefore, optimally you would have multiple platforms for their specific purposes. In PacBio's case, scaffolding and potentially base kinetics come to mind as things it does that the other major platforms don't.

        Recent Advances in Sequencing Analysis Tools
        by seqadmin


        The sequencing world is rapidly changing due to declining costs, enhanced accuracies, and the advent of newer, cutting-edge instruments. Equally important to these developments are improvements in sequencing analysis, a process that converts vast amounts of raw data into a comprehensible and meaningful form. This complex task requires expertise and the right analysis tools. In this article, we highlight the progress and innovation in sequencing analysis by reviewing several of the...

        Essential Discoveries and Tools in Epitranscriptomics
        by seqadmin




        The field of epigenetics has traditionally concentrated more on DNA and how changes like methylation and phosphorylation of histones impact gene expression and regulation. However, our increased understanding of RNA modifications and their importance in cellular processes has led to a rise in epitranscriptomics research. “Epitranscriptomics brings together the concepts of epigenetics and gene expression,” explained Adrien Leger, PhD, Principal Research Scientist...
