High-throughput bacterial genome sequencing: an embarrassment of choice, a world of opportunity

Abstract

Here, we take a snapshot of the high-throughput sequencing platforms, together with the relevant analytical tools, that are available to microbiologists in 2012, and evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of these platforms in obtaining bacterial genome sequences. We also scan the horizon of future possibilities, speculating on how the availability of… (More)
