    That sounds like common sense, but nonetheless it's good to see there's a concrete physical example of it happening.

    Yep, the Garvan Institute's bought one-big news here.

    The curve plot of genome cost vs time is fiercely exponential. Cool beans.

    But I thought Oxford Nanopore would steal the day. I guess they are having manufacturing issues.

    Could Gatica be far behind? Are you a valid?

    Did you ever read about that experiment that trained worms to navigate a maze and their offspring inexplicably were able to navigate it sight unseen more successfully than a control population? DNA isn't supposed to be capable of encoding memories and skills. Then along came histones...

    I'm pretty sure nobody in the whole of science understands how this shit works. One more beautiful mystery.

    A banana that tastes like Kobe beef? Sure, I'll buy a bunch.

    Why is this a bad stock pick? It has doubled in price in the past 12 months and the CEO just sold a bunch of shares this week. These might be reasons to wait for a pullback. Oh and a P/E of 190, just like the pre dot bomb glory days.

    Why is this a good stock pick? Lots of reasons; dominating the sequencing market being perhaps the main one

    3 minutes for a full analysis of a human genome at full supercomputer throttle - not too shabby
