Article To Watch: Options in high through-put sequencing

Ion Torrent Machine
Roche 454 Junior
Illumina Miseq
With the recent publishing of the Nature Biotechnology article, Performance comparison of benchtop high-throughput sequencing platforms, showcasing the differences in three common "bench-top" sequencers, The 454 GS Junior (Roche), The Miseq (Illumina), and the Ion Torrent PGM (Life Technologies), we thought we would highlight the article seeing that our core offers services using all three platforms. The bottom line of the article highlights that choosing between these three platforms is a multi-pronged decision in that it is ultimately based on the user's needs. For more information on which platform would best fit your sequencing needs, check out the article and then feel free to email us at genomics@mskcc.org .
