DNA sequencing in the middle of the Pacific Ocean – Video

A group of researchers including scientists at San Diego State University overcame equipment failure, space constraints and shark-infested waters to do real-time DNA sequencing in a remote field location. Check out this video to find out how they did it!

Today we published the article in which they describe the sequencing and informatics pipelines established during the 2013 Line Islands research expedition, release the data generated during the expedition, and discuss some of the unexpected challenges in remote sequencing.
