This article points out that with increasingly faster DNA sequencing, we might be about to see knowledge and applications in biology progress at the same kinds of speeds that we've seen in electronics in the recent past. (It really isn't all that long ago that we saw the first commercial application of a transister -- when a transister had solder leads.)
Shoot. Already I don't understand most of the technological stuff I routinely use. We might be soon be seeing the solution to the problem of the common cold. And next, after viruses, maybe they will work on moods and attitudes. Or did they already do that and didn't tell me?
And how soon before you run to Best Buy or Costco to buy a DNA sequencer?
