Individual genome sequencing via nanotechnology

from the Know-thyself dept.
Gina Miller writes "A small British company Solexa is developing a dense single molecule array, based on nanotechnology, that allows simultaneous analysis of hundreds of millions of individual molecules. It expects to apply this technology to sequencing an individual human genome much more quickly and cheaply than can be done with current methods: Cambridge University Spinoff Devises Array for Swift, Cheap Resequencing. The arrays could also be applied to studying interactions between other large sets of molecules."
