Bulk sequence pricing

Illumina announces that they are slicing their price of whole-genome sequence to 19,500 . This is half what they were charging before. Hey, you can get it at 14,5000 per genome if you do it in bulk, 5 or more people. Perhaps you and your family for a cool 72,500?

As I mentioned before, the price of personal genome sequencing has been plummeting and I predicted 1,000 by the end of a year’s time. Admittedly, that is a bit (understatement) of an optimistic prediction, but the trajectory definitely is headed that way.
