2 Ted Talks on the Next Generation Sequencing Impact

Here are a couple of great Ted Talks on the impact of next generation sequencing on a variety of areas that promise to fundamentally change our daily lives.

This is a good talk about the future of sequencing and the impact of massively parallel sequencing. The impact to patient care, food supply, health insurance, politics, and more are discussed.

More of an introductory discussion on gene sequencing. What is genomics? How will it affect our lives? In this intriguing primer on the genomics revolution, entrepreneur Barry Schuler says we can at least expect healthier, tastier food. He suggests we start with the pinot noir grape, to build better wines.

SUNY Buffalo Lists Services On the Genohub Next Generation Sequencing Market

Genohub would like to welcome The University at Buffalo Next-Generation Sequencing and Expression Analysis Core Facility (UB Next-Gen Core), which includes the Western New York Stem Cell Sequencing and Epigenomics Core (WNYSTEM). The sequencing services listed by SUNY will add more available options to the Genohub next generation sequencing market.

SUNY listed the following next generation sequencing instruments and library prep options:

  • Instruments:
    • Illumina HiSeq paired end sequencing and single read sequencing options
  • Library prep:
    • Illumina DNA
    • Illumina ChIP
    • Illumina Small RNA (microRNA)
    • Illumina RNA (polyA-selected)

The SUNY Core Facility is located on the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus at the New York State Center of Excellence in Bioinformatics and Life Sciences. They are the first next-generation sequencing service provider in Western New York. We look forward to matching SUNY Buffalo with the most compatible high throughput sequencing projects for their lab.
