you idiot don't know any science behind these sequencing technologies, ILMN will eventually be replaced by PACB, trust me. just follow the number of scientific paper published by using pacbio, it will grow exponentially. SMRT sequencing will reach 10kb average reads soon, that's a great advantage for de novo assemble, SMRT will be used in new born screen. SMRT can also do lots of base modification analysis, which will be the next big thing in genomic research. ILMN reads stop at an average of 150 bp, and that's it.
