Genomic Sequencing Cost Dropping Dramatically

Blogger Aaron Saenz cites National Human Genome Research Institute figures indicating that the cost of sequencing DNA is dropping dramatically:

The costs of sequencing DNA over the past decade and used that information to create two truly jaw-dropping graphs. NHGRI’s research shows that not only are sequencing costs plummeting, they are outstripping the exponential curves of Moore’s Law. By a big margin.

Saenz goes on to say that the stage is set for a great revolution in genetics fueled by these plummeting sequencing prices. It may soon make medical and economic sense to sequence everyone to prevent and treat disease.
