Daniel MacArthur gives us the lowdown from AGBT, the annual sequencing bonanza. While there's a lot of good data being presented, the overarching theme is the evolving battle between third-gen sequencing companies, he says at Genetic Future. Illumina said in a presentation early in the week that they'd be able to "routinely generate 95 Gb (that's 95 billion bases, the equivalent of 30 human genomes) of DNA sequence per run" by the end of the year.
