New NIH awards focus on nanopore technology for DNA sequencing
Date:9/6/2013

olecules pass through protein nanopores. Such approaches may enable the development of faster, lower-cost DNA sequencing techniques.

The costs of DNA sequencing have greatly declined since 2003, when the genome sequencing performed under the Human Genome Project was completed at a cost of approximately $1 billion. Only a year later, in 2004, sequencing a human genome cost an estimated $10-50 million, thanks to improvements in technologies and tools. By 2009, NHGRI met its goal of producing high-quality human genome sequences at a 100-fold reduction in price, or $100,000. While achieving another 100-fold drop in price has been difficult, sequencing a person's genome today costs about $5,000 to $6,000 (http://www.genome.gov/sequencingcosts).
