Can anyone please advise the best source of data for next gen sequencing figures. For example how do i find out for the different platforms ( 454 Sequencer, Solexa/Illumina and ABI Solid):
-the number of bases per run
-the cost to sequence a base
-the current doubling time for sequencing
I need the source of these figures to be reliable enough to quote in a paper.
I see figures like these all over the place in journals but there is rarely a source of the data and I would like to be able to be able to attach a definite date to any figures.
I've already seen this great post on this forum about diminishing sequencing costs
thanks a lot
