There is some fascinating information in a recent article of PharmaDD.
The title of the article is "race for the $1,000 genome Heats up."
Some interesting excerpts about the powers of technology in the sequencing arean: "Our data showed we had sequenced 2.6 billion bases, which means we had an average of 16-fold coverage of the human X chromosome. The over-sampling gives you much higher confidence," explains Smith. He says customers are looking for high-accuracy sequencing that’s faster and less expensive. "Our system delivers about 100-times the throughput of conventional sequencing at about 1/100th of the cost,"
