11 Top Next Generation Sequencing Blogs

Here is a compilation of some of the best next generation sequencing blogs for your reading pleasure:


CoreGenomics is a personal blog written by James Hadfield who runs a genomics core facility in Cambridge. The core runs lots of next-generation sequencing and gene expression microarrays alongside other Genomic technologies.

Pathogens Genes and Genomes:

A heady mix of bacterial pathogenomics, next-generation sequencing, type-III secretion, bioinformatics and evolution.

Next-Gen Sequencing:

A working guide to the rapidly developing world of Next-Generation DNA sequencing, with an emphasis on bioinformatics.


An eclectic blog of what could more adeptly be described as complete articles which are produced by a variety of authors with varying areas of focus.

Omics! Omics!:

A computational biologist, Dr Keith Robison’s personal views on new technologies & publications on genomics & proteomics and their impact on drug discovery.

Genomes Unzipped:

Genomes Unzipped is a group blog providing expert, independent commentary on the personal genomics industry.

In Between Lines of Code:

A blog on Biology, sequencing, bioinformatics and more, by Lex Nederbragt who works at the University of Oslo at the Centre for Ecological and Evolutionary Synthesis (CEES).

Kevin’s GATTACA World:

Kevin Gattaca’s blog with a focus on bioinformatics, genome science and next generation sequencing.

Next Generation Technologist:

A blog by Dale Yuzuki, who is a marketing professional who currently works for Life Technologies Corporation and offers a unique perspective on next generation sequencing.

Blog @ Illumina:

Of course no next gen sequencing blog list would be complete without including the most prolific next gen sequencing instrument company in the world.


A blog focused on transcriptome sequencing news.

We hope you enjoy some of the blogs on this list. Please comment if I missed any other terrific next gen sequencing blogs.

  1. A great list that you compiled, especially since the rise of genomics will naturally lead people to inquire and learn more about this application of bioinformatics. With genomics being the leading application of bioinformatics and experiencing a rapid growth according to a report by Grand View Research, people do need such blog sites to brush up their knowledge.
