@har-wadim thanks, I hadn't thought of it like that. What increase in throughput constitutes a generation?

comment What is the difference between second and third generation sequencing
Ultimately we, as scientists, shouldn't get hung up on the exact use of this terminology since it is clearly now just part of marketing the latest advance in sequencing technology.

comment What is the difference between second and third generation sequencing
In my opinion referring to Sanger sequencing as 'first generation' is historically incorrect. Maxam-Gilbert sequencing preceded it and produced lots of useful results - see Addendum in my answer here: biology.stackexchange.com/questions/17598/…
