Is the Lower Cost of Computing Power Increasing the Use of Genetic Testing?

Read Transcript

The cost of storage of computing power and of data storage has dropped dramatically in the last four or five years as well although not nearly as fast as our ability to sequence DNA. And so that of course is the neighbor of this technology to arise, but it's interesting to note that if you look ahead at the next couple of years, the rate at which we can acquire the genetic information, will far out strip our abilities to store it and process it, if it continues on the pace it has been.

Semi-conductor, computer data storage, and computing technology is not keeping pace with the technology developments in biotechnology and genetic sequencing, that is genetic sequencing is increasing its efficiency faster than computers are, faster than Moore's Law.
