Sorry for being stupid, but I still don't get it
We currently only have the MiSeq (other sequencing is outsourced), but we also have a back-end infrastructure processing the data offline. Nevertheless, we only transfer the fastq files after the run is completed and not the whole bunch of data written to disk. How often do you need this additional amount of data? I'm of course interested whether we are discarding useful information here?!
