IBM to Enter DNA Sequencing Field with Nanopore Technology | GenomeWeb

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – IBM announced today that it is developing a nanoscale DNA sequencer, with the goal of sequencing a human genome at a cost of under $1,000.

The firm is one of several companies or researchers that have been awarded at least $5.7 million from the National Human Genome Research Institute this year to support their efforts in developing technologies for sequencing a human genome at low cost. The grants are part of NHGRI's Revolutionary Genome Sequencing Technologies grant program, which also is known as the "$1,000 Genome" program.
