At our recent institute symposium I added an additional graphic to try and get people thinking about how much their sequencing costs.
Can you work it out: Below are six pairs of circles representing genome, methylome, RNA-seq (GX), ChIP-seq, Exomes and amplicons, size is proportional to cost and the two colours represent library preparation and sequencing.
- Can you determine which application is which?
- Which colour is library prep?
- Which colour is sequencing?
- How much do you think each application costs?
