Nuit Blanche: What is Faster than Moores Law and Why You Should Care More at http://atechpoint.com/ #tech #atechpoint
Genetic Sequencing - Our ability to read DNA has become one the fastest growing technologies ever. Reading all the DNA for a single human is called reading a person’s genome.
Rapidly falling costs will make genome sequencing common in just a few years. Food production and heath are two areas that will benefit greatly. Good times are coming!
The company is coming of age at a time when the costs of full-genome sequencing are falling faster than even Moore’s Law would have predicted. Full genome sequencing — not the kind of testing where you’re handling only select snippets of DNA — runs at around $8,000 now, down from $100 million in 2001.
Through Dirt-Cheap Genetic Testing, Counsyl Is Pioneering A New Bioinformatics Wave http://techcrunch.com/2013/04/23/counsyl/
Did you know? The cost of sequencing an entire genome is becoming so cheap, that soon you may have your DNA sequenced as part of a routine doctor’s visit. Have questions about DNA and genomics for our expert scientist Brian Simison? Post them here and we’ll ask a few of them during our Chat with an Academy Scientist program this Thursday at 12:30pm, which will be streaming live online.
