Pac Bio Sequel

This isn’t anything others haven’t heard about, I’m sure, but I just saw the announcement for the Pac Bio Sequel.

It’s a pretty looking machine, and it’s promise (according to the press release) is pretty awesome. Actually, I’ve always had a sweet spot for Pac Bio, despite never having worked with Pac Bio data. It’s just that I so much want it to work. There’s just something appealing to me about tethered enzymes and single molecule sequencing.

Anyhow, I don’t have much commentary, though I’d love to hear if others do, about the Sequel.
