Storify on microbial genome sequencing in 2014

Technology is improving by leaps and bounds. With the current trends of massive, ultra-high-sequencing-coverage-combined-with-state-of-the-art-computational-binning-algorithms supported metagenomic assemblies and lasertweezer/microfluidics-enhanced, flow-cytometry based, MDA-powered single-cell genomics churning out incredible insights into the world of uncultivated microbes, it’s important to return, every once in a while, to the humble pursuit of good old-fashioned genome sequencing of simple, pure culture microbes. Here is a storify on just this from a recent Twitter exchange:
