Over the summer, Cancer Research UK's James Hadfield set up a Google map showing where facilities housing next-gen sequencers were located. Now, he and the University of Birmingham's Nick Loman have updated that map, available here. The newer version allows users to filter results by sequencer type or country. "Perhaps most excitingly for stats-nerds, this is all database-driven so the long awaited league tables of sequencing platforms can be calculated automatically," Loman writes at his blog, adding that the tables aren't yet available as the map is first being checked for errors and omissions.
