AGBT 2014 Link Roundup

AGBT 2014 Highlights and Link Roundup

AGBT 2014 Highlights and Link Roundup

The much anticipated AGBT 2014 event is over. One of the highlights of this year’s AGBT is that one could see a glimpse of Oxford Nanopore data. In addition, Oxford Nanopore announced the lucky researchers who will get their hands on MinION sequencers soon through its first wave of early access program. At AGBT, as for the other sequencing companies concerned, Illumina: enjoyed its attention for its latest onslaught on sequencing industry with NextSeq 500 and HiSeq X Ten, and PacBio put up a good show of how long reads are useful and why PacBio is still relevant.
