Law of Accelerating Returns at Work

A Cambridge genomics company called Knome said it will provide such a service for $24,500 per individual; there's also $19,500-per-person rate for couples and families.

That sounds expensive, until you consider that a year ago it cost more than $100,000, and not long before that more than $1 million. Within a few years, you'll be able to get your whole genome sequenced for less than a thousand bucks.
