Thinking of SNP and Personal NGS at a suburb

If living, a suburb is better than central of the city. If staying at hotel for not sightseeing, the suburb is also better. Today is a good day. I got idea there.

There is 1 million SNP (Single Nucleotide Polymorphism) in 3 billion human’s DNA array. Each SNP affects a trait. How I remember many of SNP!

I found 2 interesting projects today.

20 or 30? years ago, A computer became a personal computer. NGS(Next Generation Sequencer) takes time for 2 days until finishing full sequence of human genome. And this sequencer must be Personal NGS. No. it has already done.

Here is this USB type NGS that I saw last year. We can use it connecting to PC. The price is 1000 USD. It is a same price with 1 laptop computer. Oxford Nanopore Technologies
