BBC story on Complete Genomics

This BBC video is worth checking out – it’s a nice visual display of the processes used by genome sequencing provider Complete Genomics to smash apart and resequence a human genome.

I can’t help but wonder if Complete built the blue-lit, monitor-lined hallway (screen shot below) purely for this video; it makes for great cinematics.


It must be personal genomics week here in the UK – the BBC also ran a generally favourable story on 23andMe a few days ago.
