Human Gene Mapping Price to Drop to $1,000, Illumina Says

The $1,000 human genome sequence is here, according to Illumina Inc.

The HiSeq X sequencer is designed to process 20,000 genomes a year at a cost of $1,000 each, said Jay Flatley, Illumina’s chief executive officer. He introduced the machine yesterday at the JPMorgan Chase & Co. health-care conference in San Francisco.
