A genome scan for your doctor

Abstract:
According to a group of scientists who participated at the conference "The Future of DNA Sequencing: Advancing Toward the $1000 Genome", genome scanning could be ready to use within five years. While some companies like Amersham Bioscences are tweaking their existing machinery to make them smaller and much faster for this purpose, other companies like U. S. Genomics Inc. and VisiGen Biotechnologies Inc. are using nanotechnology and bio-mimicking technologies to speed up the process.
