How to get genomes at one ten-thousandth the cost


1113 years to reduce costs 100-fold, from $10.00 to $0.10 per finished base pair6. The solicitations also addressed a key issue in determining the true meaning of sequencing by cost by linking it to a measurable standard of sequence quality. The ‘gold standard’ for genomic sequencing was 99.99% accuracy with essentially no gaps7, but experience showed that… (More)
