Over at Core Genomics, James Hadfield is keeping a list of all the next-generation sequencing-related acronyms out there, and there are a lot. Currently, his list is at about 35 entries, though Hadfield notes that most — like Sono-Seq and FRT-Seq, for example — are only mentioned once in PubMed. "I suspect authors are trying to come up with something as catchy as 'ChIP-Seq' in the [hope] that their paper will be cited more frequently," Hadfield writes. "A search through PubMed suggests otherwise."
DGE-Seq, AutoMeDip-Seq, LOL …
