Many different next generation sequencing technologies have been developed over the last few years. We were curious about which were being actively used by large number of NGS enthusiasts. After months and months of extensive research and writing lengthy equations, we derived a formula that we believe reasonably reflects the relative usage. ‘Complete’ in the chart gives the number for technology from ‘Complete Genomics’.
Ok, that part about lengthy equations and extensive research is a joke. The above estimates are as unscientific as they could be. So, please take them with a grain of salt.
P. S. The above chart is generated using R. Here is a very helpful introductory page for those interested in using R for generating various charts.
