Love the map
But by my calculation it is only catching about 15% of all the installations. How do we get the rest to sign up ?

League Tables?

possible. Look out for the tables next week.

James - fantastic work, very very useful. What's the status on the league tables?

I just added a few mexican sites -- sadly most don't have webpages in English. Anyhow, I was at a loss as to how to edit one entry, so if you get stuck like me, take these steps:

Open the map
Click on the "Browse" tab
Click on the name of the sequencing centre
Click on the "update this centre's details" link
Edit all you want :) For the map location just drag and drop it ^^
Click on "submit changes"

I've got them working and hope to put them live in the next few days.

I'll post again when they are ready.

Thanks Leo for posting this. I'm in the process of making a few changes to the map site to hopefully make it more intuitive to edit/add centres.

UT Southwestern in Dallas has a SOLiD 3+ and an Illumina. Baylor in Dallas has a SOLiD, I believe.

Hi Vanessa - feel free to update the map! It's a community resource so relies on the users to keep it current.

VanessaS 02-12-2010 06:55 AM

All updated!

Hussman Institute for Human Genomics
Dear James,
Miami Institute for Human Genomics has been renamed, John P. Hussman Institute for Human Genomics. We have 2 GAIIx and 2 SOLiD3.

Hi guys

James will be posting in a new thread I think but just to say the map site has been updated with the following refinements:
* there is now a statistics page at
* clusters now represent machine numbers rather than number of facilities, label shows number of machines when zoomed in
* dynamic list of centre on the right
* ability to zoom in to centre
* bit prettier

Go now!

I've also blogged a short summary at

Awesome, thanks a lot Nick! and thanks to the contributors!

ECO 03-23-2010 06:44 PM

Just added the link to the front page of this site...and redirected there as well. Great effort. :)

Apologies, in my zeal to try to add centers to the U.S. sequencing capital* I seem to have cloned both the DFCI Heliscope and the Children's Hospital Boston SOLiD

I think I have the Heliscope down to one instance, but fixing the Children's mistake will require eliminating a center -- does that happen automatically if you knock its sequencer count to 0?

Another case of this: Geschwind lab out in CA seems to be duplicated. Michael Smith in Vancouver appears to have two tags, but with different sequencer numbers.

* -- :-)

nickloman 03-24-2010 01:07 AM

Thanks for the updates. I think I've killed the duplicate entries you mentioned via the backend admin.

Are you sure the Geschwind lab is duplicated, I can only see that once.

I tend to moderate all the updates and pick up the duplicates before they are added to the site and delete them, but I do occasionally miss them as the updates have been coming thick and fast recently ...

seqmaster 07-31-2010 05:47 AM

hi, congratulations, this is a great initiative and great work so far.

I have found a bug tho, so... here you go:

on the map, we can see for the Max Planck Institute in Berlin 12 sequencers however, on the statistics page the institute is not mentioned in the top 10 (it should be on place nr. 10)

Maybe you can update the statistics page using the map info?

Hope i helped, laterz

nickloman 08-05-2010 03:20 AM

Hi seqmaster

The reason Max Planck isn't on that table is because the table summarises the top genome centres, defined by those places that are dedicated genome centres (as opposed to univerisities, research institutes etc.) - this discrimination may not be particularly helpful as I'm not sure how accurate the data is, but that's the reason for now.

Insitute of Plant Biology, University of Zurich does not have a next generation sequencer and so can be updated on the map.


scrosby 05-04-2011 06:36 AM

This is stellar work! Could you please add:

The Genome Technology Access Center at Washington University
Campus Box 8232
660 South Euclid
St. Louis, MO 63110

We currently have 2 HiSeqs.

charsbak 07-27-2011 09:04 AM

This is great work. Is there a way to output the raw data from this map, so I can create my own stats table?

james hadfield 08-08-2011 05:48 AM

The data on the map are submitted with no request to make them any more publically available than we have already in the stats page. I am not sure we can simply post the info out. However we are considering changes t the map and I would be grateful for any and all suggestions on what users would like to see on it.
