They’ve partnered with the X Prize Foundation, which has offered a $10 million award to whoever can develop a technique to sequence 100 genomes (the full code contained in our DNA) in less than 30 days, at a cost of less than $1,000 per genome. Such a technology, if developed, would enable companies to do widespread genome testing, something that’s currently prohibitively expensive.
