454 Sequencing:
Roche 454 sequencing can sequence much longer reads than Illumina. Like Illumina, it does this by sequencing multiple reads at once by reading optical signals as bases are added.
Read Length:Up to 1,000 bp
Mode Read Length:700 bp
Throughput Profile:85% of total bases from reads gt;500 bp, 45% of total bases from reads gt;700 bp
Typical Throughput:700mb
Run Time:23 hrs
Consensus Accuracy ( E. Coli):99.997
Sequencing Depth:
Shotgun:3.5X (XLR70)
Paired Ends (3,8,20mb):2.5X (XLR70)
Total Bases: 8.02 gb
Total Bases in Assembled Contigs:969 Mb
