Sequencing Stats


More than 200 people responded to our sequencing survey to give us a glimpse of trends in the field. The majority of respondents told us they performed sequencing for biomedical research, and there was a close to even split among people who said they used sequence data to study particular genes, SNPs, and to verify cloned genes for protein experiments. The debate between draft and finished sequence is still very much alive: in a photo finish, 52 percent of respondents said draft was fine, while 48 percent said finished sequence would serve researchers better. Here you’ll find some of the other data we gleaned from the survey.
