From the Ted Talk by Jun Wang: How digital DNA could help you make better health choices

Unscramble the Blue Letters

Jun Wang: Well, good question. I'll tell you that seven years ago, when I co-founded BGI, and served as the CEO of the company there, the only goal there for me to do was to dvrie the sequencing cost down. It started from 100 million dollars per hamun gmeone. Now, it's a couple hundred dollars for a human genome. The only reason to do it is to get more people to benefit from it. So for the diatigl me, it's the same thing. Now, you probably need, you know, one million dollars to digitize a person. I think it has to be 100 dollars. It has to be free for many of those people that urgently need that.
