Year's End

I hoped this year to push myself to blog more frequently and regularly.  Clearly I did better than some years, but not up to the standard I had hoped for.  I've also realized that I missed noting some significant personal milestones.

Reflecting on a Year of Ion Torrent

Ion Torrent released three more datasets this morning, all generated on their 318 chip.  One's from E.coli but two are human genomic samples.  With approximately 1.2Gbp of raw data coming from these 318 chips (fron around 6 million quality filtered reads per chip), they are starting to move up the food chain in human genomics from pure amplicon sequencing to more complex small targeted resequencing efforts.
