DNA Sequencing, the Horse Race

From the website of British nonprofit biomedical funding organization the Wellcome Trust, a nice article that includes clearly animated explanations of the current methods used for DNA sequencing, as well as a brief overview of “third generation” sequencers, which we should see soon. Companies mentioned include 454 Life Sciences, Solexa, Illumina, SOLiD, Pacific Biosciences, Oxford Nanopore Technologies, and Complete Genomics. The “$1,000 genome” race is on!

And from MIT’s Technology Review comes this piece on the business of personal genomics, focusing on the upmarket service Knome.
