Now hesitating between the Ion Torrent PGM and Illumina MiSeq.
Since i imagine the price would be similar for both instruments (with additional accessories) what would be your suggestions regarding the advantages/disadvantages of these platforms?
The critical factors for me would be the quality of reads, ease of preparation and analysis.

Thank you in advance,
