Nice commentary. It is amazing to be working with this technology. We are finding however to have high confidence in sequencing results for high resolution tracing, we need high quality DNA, and for bovine TB at least, genomic DNA from pure culture is by far the best. Maybe software will solve some of this and we could be sequencing directly from tissue before too long.

Just finished reading the Scientist article on peer review and on line journals.  A good read of credible diverse opinions on the future of scientific publishing.  I have certainly been concerned about the explosion of new journals, and the spam I get requesting submissions is certainly suspect.... A new ranking or rating system for peer reviewed journals is needed.
