  • As already predicted, it is not only Illumina who communicates innovations for their NGS portfolio. Here you can read about the implementations Pacific Biosciences plans this this. I think the good news for many users of PacBio machines is, that they do not talk about new instruments, but improvments that affect already installed machines (GenomeWeb):
    •PacBio plans to improve the sequencing chemistry, including the active loading of single polymerase enzymes onto the chip
    •PacBio plans to improve the workflows for an easier and faster handling of samples
    •PacBio plans to improve bioinformatics for faster de novo genome assemblies & better analysis of full-length HLA analysis

    With this changes PacBio wants to extend the data output to more than 4 gigabases / SMRT cell and increase the average read lengths to 15-20 kbp.

    Read more about it here.

    I still wonder if there will be news from PacBio this year about a new system? Maybe a benchtop like everyone has?
