Next-Next Gen Seq

Rofl I like the title!

Read all about 3rd gen sequencing or single molecule sequencing at the methagora blog

"While the technology feature, “DNA sequencing: generation next-next”, was at press, Pacific Biosciences of Menlo Park, California stunned the community with their announcement of a single molecule sequencing technology they claim will provide a complete human genome in 15 minutes by the year 2013. Although Pacific Biosciences was founded in 2004, the company had been very ‘hush hush’ about their technology development. But that veil of secrecy was lifted during the Advances in Genome Biology and Technology meeting held February 6th to 9th at Marco Island, Florida where Stephen Turner, chief technology officer, presented the first preliminary data on the system."
