Sinai's Vincent Funari on RNA sequencing his lab is doing with Ion Torrent sequencers

Vincent Funari, director of the Genomics Research Core at Cedars Sinai in Los Angeles, discusses the huge demand that he is seeing from scientists at his facility for sequencing on the Ion PGM Sequencer and the Ion Proton Sequencer. Dr. Funari uses the Ion Proton Sequencer to study gene regulation using RNAseq, ChipSeq, and miRNA sequencing technologies in human conditions like diabetes or neuromuscular disease. He uses the Ion PGM Sequencer for 16S sequencing and for mutation identification in targeted cancer gene panels like lung cancer.
