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

helping to make it the fastest-selling sequencer in the world.

New Life Grand Challenges Dataset
Ion Torrent also released its third round of benchmark data for the Life Grand Challenges competition. Participants are challenged with driving further performance improvement of the Ion PGM sequencer in three areas: sample preparation, base yield and accuracy. To win the $1 million prize in any of these three categories, participants must beat the internal record at Ion Torrent by 2X, through their own protocol improvements.

The latest Grand Challenges E. coli dataset exhibits a typical read length of 213 bp and high quality, (Q20) reads as long as 302 bp. The raw error rate at the 150th base is only 1.1 percent, three times better than today's fluorescence-based sequencing-by-synthesis technologies. An Ion 316 chip was used, which generated 571 Mb of data—more than five times the initial throughput specification of this chip. Aligned bases and source code are available by registering for the Life Grand Challenges on the Ion Community. Entries for this round of the Life Grand Challenges close on Dec. 15, 2011.

"Nothing gets better faster than Ion semiconductor sequencing," said Dr. Maneesh Jain, Vice President of Marketing and Business Development. "The combination of a trillion dollar supply chain, 40 years of accumulated Moore's law, and the simplicity and rapid iteration cycle of Ion PostLight™ sequencing is unprecedented."

Torrent Scout
Torrent Scout integrates voltage, base call and alignment data into a single dashboard, providing utility for developers who want to monitor the performance of individual wells on an Ion chip. No other next-generation sequencing platform provides a comparable level of openness and a
