Executive Summary

Even as next-generation sequencing technologies make their way to the market, improving the efficiency of sample prep at the front end of large-scale genome sequencing will continue to be a viable strategy for significantly driving down costs and in so doing, expand applications. That's the initial strategy of Microchip Biotechnologies, which is commercializing microfluidic technology originally developed in the lab of Richard Mathies at Berkeley.

Next-generation Sequencing: Slowly Moving towards the $1,000 Genome

Even if most attempts to read DNA strands in real time appear stalled and the goal of true single-molecule sequencing has, with the notable exception of Helicos, for the most part given way (at least for the time being) in favor of cluster-based approaches with lower data densities, there's still plenty of opportunity for start-ups to advance the field of next-generation sequencing: with microfluidics, nanotechnology, and biochemistries to better enable direct DNA observation and analysis.
