Is anyone aware of available and up-to-date information regarding the proportion of long read sequencing out of all sequencing performed? I am looking for something like "out of X bases sequenced in 2019, Y% were in long reads", or similar.
I've been googling this for a while but couldn't find anything.

This would be impossible to determine with certainty. You could scrape SRA/ENA to get some general idea but it would not be truly representative of all sequencing that gets done.

Based on sequencing we do, I would say long read sequencing is going to be <5% of total bases sequenced. This will likely remain the case for a long while.

Thanks, that's about what I expected, but let's wait and see if someone has some data, even if it's just one sequencing center or something like this.
