According the New York Times by the second quarter of next year a 
company called "Complete Genetics" will sequence your ENTIRE 
genome for $5000. This appears to be a legitimate company, 
it has 46 million in venture capital and more important it has 
Leroy Hood working for them, and he is the Henry Ford of DNA 

I knew this was coming but not this fast! I suppose I shouldn't
be surprised it should be so cheap so fast because the cost has 
dropped by a factor of 10 every year for the last 4 years.  
That makes Moore's law look like crap.
