Please edit information of Beijing Genomics Institute
Hi James,
It's a great work you've done to integrate the information of sequencing centers world wide.
For Beijing Genomics Institute in China, the headquater has moved to Shenzhen since May, 2007. We have 30 Illumina GAII, 1 ABI SOLiD, 1 Roche 454.

Beijing Genomics Institute at Shenzhen
Shenzhen, Guang Dong, China

Thanks again for your effort.

Hi James, we have 1 GAII and 1 SOLiDv3. The Roche 454 was sent back!

Great map! :)

We have 1 GAII at UUSM from UNAM, Mexico.

It's new for us, so the website is not complete right now, but at least there is the contact info.

2 GAIIs and 5 SOLiDs at TGen in Phoenix ( Home of Craig et al, Nature Methods 2008 (bar-coded multiplexed sequencing).

445 N. 5th Street
Phoenix, AZ. 85004

Just a detail about UUSM. It's located at Cuernavaca and not Mexico City.
Thanks for adding it :)

Stanford heliscope
Stanford has a Heliscope in Steve Quake's department.

Hi James,

We are a core facility with 1 GAII at MGX (3 GAII in november)

Montpellier GenomiX (MGX)
Institut de Génomique Fonctionnelle
141 rue de la cardonille
34094 Montpellier Cedex

Nope, the map does not allow this kind of info to be easily extracted. There are almost 150 sites listed as having next-gen sequencers. Most of these have multiple instruments and some have upwards of 40. I would guess the map captures around 400+ instruments, maybe more.

Keep on adding stuff everyone!

One Roche 454

(there may be more, not sure)

New GoogleMap, search by platform and other features...
Thanks to everyone for looking at the GoogleMap and adding information,
there have been over 100,000 views! There is now an updated and improved
version which you can find at

The old version is now locked for future edits but will be periodically
updated from the new database. The new site allows you to add new sites,
update sites with platforms and capacity and correct any errors you find
on the map yourself.

The new map has a number of new features. Sites are clustered together
to make it easier to navigate high-density regions. You can filter by
individual platform, for example "show me all sites which have Illumina
& SOLiD". There is more information held about each site. All
the work on the new map has been done by Nick Loman at University of
Birmingham, I really must thank him for taking my idea and making it
much more user friendly. We'd be grateful for any feedback if you find
any small problems or have suggestions for improving the interface further.

The map was put together in the first place to show how many places had
installed systems. I think when I first made it there were about the
same number of Illumina's world-wide as Broad has currently. There has
been phenomenal growth in next-gen technologie.

And of course, for those interested in the question of which platform is
in the lead, we will be putting league tables up shortly. But we wanted
to give the community some time to help get the map as accurate as
possible. Look out for the tables next week.

Hopefully this map can help you find someone close to you to collaborate
with, ask questions or just go to the pub and join in nerdy
conversations about your first sequences being 350bp on an autorad. DNA
bp is the next MB of Ram!

nickloman 11-20-2009 06:34 AM

Thank you James! I really hope you all like the new site. Please do take the time to check the entry for your institute is as up-to-date as possible, and add missing facilities if you know about them. We'd be keen to get feedback on the usability and any features that would improve the site further. Obviously league tables are the next thing to implement!

I tried adding our site to the map, but right-clicking the map did nothing. I'm using Firefox 3.0.15 on a Macbook Pro.

nickloman 11-20-2009 11:48 PM

Thanks for the feedback. I gave it a try on Firefox 2.0 on the Mac and it seemed to work. Did you try CTRL-CLICK on the map? I have found some references to there being a possible bug in Firefox 3 and right-click handling so perhaps that's the issue ( Anyway, if you still have problems try going directly to and dragging the marker to the correct place (you'll need to zoom out a bit).

brjordan 11-23-2009 04:24 AM

Yes, the map is very nice and very useful. It is also still very incomplete, at least for two countries I know fairly well i.e. France and Taiwan (there are at least five second-gen systems in Taiwan that I know of). I'll be collecting the information with the correct institution names for you.

nickloman 11-23-2009 05:12 AM

Great, thank you Bertrand!

NextGen Sequencers in India
Dear James,

Appreciate if you could add Xcelris Labs from Gujarat, India in your Google map too. We are using ABI SOLiD v3 and Roche 454 for Whole genome sequencing studies. Congratulations for such an excellent work................

james hadfield 11-26-2009 03:55 AM

Dear All,
Please try and add updates and new labs yourself. This is the intention of the new map, it is interactive and does not require effort by a single person.


james hadfield 12-21-2009 02:40 AM

The new link for the google map is now, You can add stuff and sort by instrument here now.
