Default Google maps update: 1442 instruments in 486 labs

Hi All,
Thanks to everyone for putting themselves on the Instrument Map. I spoke to several people at AGBT about the map and there is a lot of interest in finding out what our neighbors are doing. We're all a bit nosy after all!
The map was used in a recent Nature editorial.

Several companies are using the map now for reporting reasons and my conversations with Illumina and ABI suggest we are capturing about 2/3rds of the installs for both platforms. I have seen at least two grant submissions that reference the map but have not yet seen it reference in a paper (hint hint).

There are now almost 1500 instruments listed across almost 500 labs, an average of 3.0 per lab.
Please keep your facility up to date and encourage your friends to do the same.

Stats: There are 1442 total machines listed in the database situated in 486 centers, an average of 3.0 machines per centre.
