What do you guys think of the Ion Proton 1 developed by a chemical engineer named Jonathan Rothberg? It can supposedly sequence most of a human genome for around $1000 compared to the past where had it costed millions.
I don't recall quite clearly, but I think researchers at IBM are developing a sequencer that costs around $100 that can read the bases of DNA fragments that flow through holes on its surface.
Could someone please provide me with more references? I might write an essay on the Ion Proton sequencer. Thanks!

Here's the min-ion. Can do 150 million base pairs in 6 hours on a usb stick:

Is it one time use? There are over 2.9 billion base pairs in the human genome.
