OSU sets 454-Jr sequencing record! | Print |  E-mail

On June 7th, 2012, our 454-Junior set what is probably a record for the best sequence run on a 454-Jr!

Using samples supplied by our new Department Head Dr. John Gustafson, we produced 223,557 high quality reads, with an average read length of 506 nt, for a total of 112,821,524 nt. This is more than double the rated capacity of the instrument! Congratulations to Dr. Hwang who performs the sequencing. We just had to do some horn-tooting because we are proud of what we accomplished with our little sequencer.
