State of the art of lON Torrent technology in Italian reaserch institutes

Next-generation sequencing (NGS) utilizes massively parallel sequencing to generate thousands of megabases of sequence information per day, opening doors to new research studies that were once difficult to accomplish in a practical manner. Ion Torrent Systems Inc. developed a system based on using standard sequencing chemistry, but with a novel, semiconductor based, detection system. This method of sequencing is based on the detection of hydrogen ions that are released during the polymerisation of DNA, as opposed to the optical methods used in other sequencing systems. The workshop we are reporting is a state of the art of the use of ION Torrent technology in different Italian research institutes.
