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

This article was originally published in Start Up

Executive Summary

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.
