Default Live Blogging from Marco Island Next Gen Sequencing conference?

There appears to be a lot of excitement about the Marco Island conference this year? Are there any Seqanswers members attending who can update the rest of us?

Rock on, I was just about to post this. I will put this out on the RSS feed and see if we can drag some people in!

Hope you don't mind if I edit your title before I put it out there!

Have Agilent announced their array enrichment plans yet? I hear it's nearly kitted and ready for release?

What is kitted? The long oligos for the whole exonome? I think Nimblegen is more ready to release their "kit".

Sorry. I meant that some information I have (via Agilent reps) tells me that they are about to release an enrichment methodology that has been refined to the degree that it will be available in "kit" format (ie...reagents plus enrichment oligo sets).

It was a big secret from Agilent reps, that would be annouced at Marco Island.

Thanks ECO! Has anyone heard anything from agilent at AGBT? If anyone could give a brief summary of AGBT, that would be really awesome!

Just found the following here:

Quote:
“We prepare a labeled derivative of Agilent’s oligo libraries to use for direct capture of target sequences by hybridization. The method is highly multiplexed, with a simple, efficient and inexpensive laboratory process, thus overcoming the sample preparation bottleneck.”
So it's a solution phase capture array. Figured they would move away from that Church gap-filling/circularization method.

Seems like this will make hybridization time and cost much less than a Nimblegen capture array, especially if they amplify the pool of oligo's after they are cleaved from the chip.

Post PacBio Highlight

The highlight of AGBT had to be the first public presentation from Steven Turner at Pacific Biosciences - a fitting way to close a great meeting. Here's more on what young Steve and his PacBio pals are up to:
