Proton Ion Torrent
The Proton is the big brother of the PGM sequencer. Its increased capacity allows to consider sequencing more consistent genomes. Based on the proton detection technique, it works with two types of chips determining the amount of sequences:
chip PI : 18 GigaBases
chip PII : 80 GigaBases (end 2014)
The sequences have an average length of 200 bases.
- De-novo all organisms
- Exome human
- Type "RAD-SEQ" approaches
