Summary[edit]

Description

Here is a brief transcript from Week 11 of MITx: 7.00x Introduction to Biology , where Professor Eric Lander talks about current DNA sequencing technology - amazing. This is from an Illumina Genome Analyzer

In fact, on the current machine we have here, the number of spots we can do and read-- three billion spots simultaneously. STUDENT: How many base pairs can you get? PROFESSOR: You can only get about 100 base pairs.It doesn't get you 700 right now. It gets you about 100 base pairs. But 100 base pairs times three billion spots, is, you know, 300 billion letters of DNA. Which is more than we collected in the entire Human Genome Project. It's collected on a glass slide. I brought one for you. This is how you read 300 billion bases of DNA.

I am in MITx: 7.00x Introduction to Biology - The Secret of Life, taught by Professor Eric Lander of MIT. It has been a remarkable class, and a great supplement to the on-campus cell biology class I have been taking concurrently. This class is one of many offered through edX
