Technology

Next Generation Human Genetics      

Jay Shendure (University of Washington, USA)

Methods
1977 - introduction of electrophoretic separation

2005 - introduction of massive parallel sequencing

2013 - many variations on sequencing

Decrease in time needed to analyse one genome

2013 -  in 11 days
           3 billion read pairs
           total output 600 Gb

Human Genome - took years
                        23 Gb

Shendure genome sequencing
