Sequencing growth

Attracted by the economics of genomics, investors have driven up the price of market leader Illumina in the last two years, but recent market falls have provided a buying opportunity.

The first human genome was sequenced in 2003 after 13 years of work by teams of scientists all over the world contributing to the Human Genome Project. It cost over US$13 billion.

Today, a human genome can be sequenced in a few hours for a few thousand dollars. Sometime in the next decade it will take an hour and cost US$100.
