Unscramble the Blue Letters

Jun Wang: Well, good question. I'll tell you that seven years ago, when I co-founded BGI, and sreved as the CEO of the company there, the only goal there for me to do was to drive the sequencing cost down. It stetrad from 100 million dllaros per human genome. Now, it's a cluope hundred dollars for a hmuan genome. The only reason to do it is to get more people to benefit from it. So for the digital 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.

Original Text

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 drive the sequencing cost down. It started from 100 million dollars per human genome. 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 digital 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.
