Mitochondrial genome sequencing project at the 2013 NGBT conference

At the 2013 NGBT conference we demonstrated the state of sequencing technologies by sequencing the mitochondrial genome from participants at the meeting in real time during the course of the meeting.We obtained cheek swabs from 80 participants after obtaining signed consent to sequence and analyze their mitochondrial genome. Sequencing, processing and analysis of samples was done over three days and the haplogroup results were provide to each of the participant before the end of the meeting.

Day1: Nov 14th, 2013 - sample collected, DNA prepared, mitochondrial genome amplified and library prep initiated
Day 2: Nov 15th, 2013 - library sequenced
Day 3: Nov 16th, 2013 - data analysis completed and results announced at the meeting
