Moores law (The observation that, over the history of computing hardware, the number of transistors in a dense integrated circuit doubles approximately every two years) and Hodgkins Law (no not the planetary Hodgkins Law) – states that sequencing genomes also increases exponentially though not as fast as computers.

But when you put the two together magic can start to happen and the speed of increase is amazing!

Thus making sequencing the human genome possible for mere 10’s of dollars instead of the current 10’s of thousands of dollars. And making it accessible to all of humanity.

This and more are coming our way as computers and biology collide.
