Researchers at 454 Life Sciences and Baylor College of Medicine have now subjected the Genome Sequencer FLX to the ultimate test: re-sequencing an entire human genome.
At the Advances in Genome Biology and Technology in Marco Island, Fla., last month, two scientists, in separate talks, presented initial results from the ongoing study.
Up until recently, no one had re-sequ
