Last week at CES, the X PRIZE Foundation was on hand to talk about the various competitions they are putting on. One, the Archon Genomics X PRIZE presented by Express Scripts, seeks a winning team that can sequence 100 human genomes in 30 days or less at a cost of no more than $1000 per genome with an accuracy of no more than one error per 1,000,000 bases with 98% completeness. We talked briefly with Grant Campany, a senior director with the X PRIZE Foundation, about the competition and the potential effects it could have on our understanding of medicine.
