Comparing Price and Tech. Specs. of Illumina MiSeq, Ion Torrent PGM, 454 GS Junior, and PacBio RS

Recently multiple groups have compared the performance of current next-gen sequencing technologies.  Independent comparisons of different next-gen sequencing machines have given us a good view of what one can expect from these constantly changing technologies. Apart from performance,  it is also good to know about price and tech. spec. differences – a much easier aspects […]

Comparing the Performance of Three Next-Gen Sequencers; Illumina MiSeq, Ion Torrent PGM and PacBio RS

The chase to sequence a human genome for $1000 has led many sequencing technology companies to update their sequencers really fast and are coming up sequencers for the mass. One interesting question that everyone interested in next-gen sequencing data wants to ask is what is the best sequencing platform. Although the answer to the question depending […]
