Genome Sequencing Represents a Gusher of Productivity in Healthcare

While the national debate on healthcare comes to a climax in Congress, there is clear evidence of enormous productivity gains in healthcare.

It is reported that the cost of genome sequencing continues to plummet in a Moore's Law fashion.

The total cost of sequencing an entire human genome started at $3 billion.

The cost today, however, is rapidly approaching $1,000--a point at which mass market sequencing and the notion of the personal genome start to become reality.
