http://pathogenomics.bham.ac.uk/blog/2012/02/a-new-sequencing-technology-enters-the-ring-shtseqtm/This has got to be a about PacBio and their latest claims about 99.999% accuracy. Hopefully not a representation how their results and new chemistry are being received at AGBT.
WOW ! That is SO bizarre ! This Nick Loman author has spent a huge amount of time crafting these tongue-in-cheek phony press releases.Hard to interpret the full intent, but I'm thinking there are 2 possible reasons:1. Professional jealousy--intellectual snobbery2. Corporate fear, because the PACB system really is BETTER.So Loman----When you read this ( and we know you are going to) why don't you take the mask off and give us some real input about your true PACB opinions?
how about possibility 3.3. complete disillusionment with pacbio in the field.
