Default SEQanswers Registers 1000th member! Traffic/posts continue to grow!

SEQanswers has marked a major milestone this morning, with the registration of it's 1000th member, in just over 10 months of existence.

Membership and activity have continued to grow rapidly, totally outstripping my expectations. I had some fun looking at some statistics from the database and Google Analytics this morning, and I thought I would share.



From the above graph, the rate of new registrations continues to climb. In the month of August to date, over 160 new members have registered.

Currently, the community represents 104 .edu institutions, 90 countries, and many companies. In total, overall 427 unique domains.

Additionally, we have members from all the major players in the next gen sequencing arena, current instrument providers (ABI, Illumina, Roche, Danaher), informatics support companies, reagent companies, not to mention a few reporters.



Daily traffic continues to grow as well...showing that most visits happen during the workweek.



Posting activity has grown correspondingly:



Clearly, the most popular thread is sci_guy's epic post Software packages for next gen sequence analysis, which has recieved nearly 10,000 views. The Bioinformatics forum is also the most active.

Anyway, that's a peek at the community, I'm very excited to see it continue to grow, and as always please feel free to post your suggestions for new features or improvements in the Site Feedback forum

Another interesting piece of info on the instrument ownership. I did not break it down further into users that have multiple instruments.

Hi, no people from Helicos here yet? I guess they should be regarded as a major player if Danaher is...

Ah good point. I'll add that to the list of things to do.
