    XGenomes is bringing DNA sequencing to the masses

    XGenomes is bringing DNA sequencing to the masses article in Techcrunch.
    A visiting scientist in Harvard Medical School’s Department of Genetics, Mir worked with the famed Harvard professor George Church on a new kind of gene sequencing technology that promised to conduct sequencing at higher speeds and far lower costs than anything that was on the market.
    ...
    Using this new tech, Mir thinks he can ultimately sequence a full genome in one to two hours and for as little as $100.
    Looking forward to the day!

    How is this different form what is currently being done in the processing? eg day say Full genomes or YSeq or Dante WGS 30X ?

    Here's a table from George Church's lab at Harvard. Not sure how complete, accurate or up-to-date it is, but it looks reasonable.

    Anyone aware of a better source?
