Still Kinda Breaks the Bank

Daniel MacArthur discusses Knome's new product, KnomeSelect, that will sequence an individual's exome for $24,500, or $19,500 per person for couples and families — a bit cheaper than the company's $100,000 full-genome sequencing service. "For the moment, combining a cheap genome scan (to pick up genome-wide patterns of common variation) with exome sequencing (to detect any rare, clearly pathogenic mutations) would give you pretty much everything you'd be likely to get from a whole genome sequence," MacArthur writes.
