Cheap genomes

The Harvard Crimson reports on George Church’s attempt to develop super-cheap genomic sequencing, though this time he’s giving a $10-20,000 price point quote instead of $1,000. Scientific American has a subscription only piece.

    Interesting, I read the article at the local library and thought it was good. But I’m more interested in the rate of dna synthesis.

    Tissue engineering combined with artificial chromosomes, will yield rejuvenized organs with ever greater potential, eventually ageless tissues(as the loopholes are closed with a more complete lock on fate and indefinite specific functions become virtually guaranteed. ).
