Open Ion Community Fuels Race to Win Three $1M Prizes
Date:9/30/2011

CARLSBAD, Calif., Sept. 30, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Life Technologies Corporation (NASDAQ: LIFE) today announced open access to protocols detailing key steps of the Ion PGM™ sequencer workflow. Methods delivering the scalability, simplicity and speed that are at the core of Ion semiconductor sequencing are now openly posted on the Ion Community. Thousands of Ion PGM users, as well as scientists that are closely watching the growth trajectory of Ion semiconductor sequencing, have already joined the Ion Community. The upgraded Ion Community will connect and multiply the contributions of Ion PGM users as they compete to win $1M—significantly amplifying internal R&D efforts.  

"Democratizing sequencing is not only about making it simple and affordable," said Ion Torrent Founder and CEO Dr. Jonathan M. Rothberg. "It's about openly sharing protocols, datasets and source code to accelerate application development within the scientific community, and making sequencing accessible to every laboratory. This openness will soon result in our customers exceeding internal record runs for all of our chips."

A new Life Grand Challenges dataset, sequencing protocols, and details of the RecognitION program are all available on the upgraded Ion Community website: http://www.iontorrent.com/community. Over 3,000 users and developers from more than 42 countries are already members of the Ion Community and membership is growing rapidly, with more than 100 new members joining every week. Community members share knowledge in real-time and develop new applications for the Ion PGM sequencer,
