Default Ion Torrent through the roof...

This article was referenced on GenomeWeb.

They comment that the Ion Torrent technology according to Jonathan Rothberg will 'improve 10-fold every six months'.

If they are getting 0.01Gb today then in eighteen months the PGM will be generating 100Gb and by the middle of 2013 it would throw out 10Tb of data per run.

My maths might be screwed up but that's a lot of data.

Anyone running one and posting yet?
