The Solexa Story

Thirteen years ago, a beer summit in an English pub spawned the birth of Solexa and the world’s leading next generation sequencing technology. In this article, Kevin Davies looks back on the key players and how they came together to form Solexa, tracking the company's growth from inception to its position today.

Next-Gen Sequencing Poised to Open New Vistas for Biomedical Research

NGS has generated a great deal of excitement in the life sciences research community in recent years. Funding agencies have focused on genomics in general and NGS in particular, resulting in rapid dissemination of high-throughput, short-read instruments and chemistries. The bioinformatics community has cooperated by providing continually improved means to deal with the mounds of data rolling out from genome labs and centers. In the Next-Generation Sequencing Technologies: Applications and Markets report, we examine the broad spectrum of NGS applications used in studies, which even at this early date have already begun delivering intriguing new insights in a variety of fields.
