Happy 10th birthday NGS!

NGS is 10...according to the latest Nature Reviews Genetics: Coming of age: ten years of next-generation sequencing technologies. Just by chance I was asked to give a talk to explain how Illumina sequencing works in a technology seminar series being delivered by the Core Heads at the CRUK Cambridge institute, and as part of that I uploaded a slide-deck and created some animations for Twitter to explain how clustering works...I hope you like it.

Illumina paired-end dual-index clustering and sequencing
and here is a "slow-mo" version for people who could not keep up with the frame-rate!


  1. Really nifty, James! Just in case I'm not the only one that can't process image and text this fast, is there any way I can slow it down?

  2. Here you were not the only person that asked for a slowed-down version!

  3. Thank you so much for this wonderful share. Planning a science and art party at a local event venue Chicago and searching for good planning ideas for it. Really want to organize a perfect event as so many things are at stake.
