As we see videos in social media of the first $PACB PacBio Revio to enter the @broadinstitute , with the promise of the long-read $1000/genome in place, what does it look like today to set up a Next-Generation Sequencing factory/institute?
There have been many of these institutes come and go, and probably the @broadinstitute (Cambridge, US) and the @sangerinstitute (Cambridge, UK) are the two referents in historical terms and in their magnitude of achievements in #genomics. So if we take them as an example, what do
we learn from them?
1) They were successful at being early adopters of large-scale Sanger Sequencing.
2) They were very well funded from the get-go, and contributed in large part to the success of sequencing the reference #human #genome in 2000-2001.

The world of Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) post-#AGBT23:
1) Some will say that $ILMN Illumina is sleep-walking into a cliff: the company has been dominating the field with 80-90%+ of the market-share, but they are unable to retain their technological advantage to competitors:
- Illumina doesn't have the most affordable $/Gb platform anymore, currently at $3.2/Gb, and $2/Gb in H2 2023, but others are already at $2/Gb, $1.5/Gb and will be at $1/Gb in Q3 2023.
- Illumina doesn't have the longest read technology, or anything near the competition in terms of read length times $/Gb. Oxford @nanopore is unmatched with their ultra-long read technology and is nearing $10/Gb Q30+ performance, as is PacBio on 15-10Kb reads.

A summary of announcements/highlights from #AGBT23 (in no particular order):
#AGBT23 cfDNA methylation profiling as a blood biomarker for Congestive Heart Failure. This is from the same team that gave you the @GrailBio Methylation Atlas, now applied to biomarker discovery.…
#AGBT23 Miga on the comparison between PacBio Revio and Oxford @nanopore High Duplex / UltraLong reads. PacBio 21/46 T2T and ONT 24/46 (higher is better). Ultralong reads scaffolding for both (unconfirmed) would mean ONT lead is even bigger.

#AGBT23 More details on the $ILMN Illumina Infinity reads technology from Alex Aravanis (post from LinkedIn).
Also first data shared on XLEAP-SBS chemistry for the NextSeq 1000/2000 instruments. Not sure why would anyone buy one of these instruments given the alternatives from @ElemBio and @CompleteGenomic 's G400.
First shipment on NovaSeq X: if Illumina can beat the competition at anything in the next few months, it'll be on manufacturing and deployment of the NovaSeq X.

In #NextGenerationSequencing, @CompleteGenomic's new of the <$100/genome with their DNBSEQ T20 available from Q3 2023, and their T7x3 $130/genome pricing, we now have 3 companies that have hit the $200/genome mark with announcements: @ElemBio $ILMN Illumina and Complete Genomics.
Both $ILMN Illumina and @CompleteGenomic's will hit the $200/genome and <$100/genome mark in the second half of 2023, but @ElemBio Element Bio AVITIx3 and Complete Genomics T7x3 pricing models are *now* available at $200/genome and $130/genome respectively.
Also @UltimaGenomics is working on their U100 instrument aiming at $100/genome, and had several announcements of partnerships with library prep providers at #AGBT23.
