DNA sequencing contest

Per Ian Sample at The Guardian, Peter Diamandis of the X-Prize Foundation is considering offering $10m for the first company to sequence the genetic code of 100 people in weeks.

"The value of having the human genome doesn't really occur until you have it for tens or hundreds of thousands of people, so the prize will make that happen," Dr Diamandis said. "To say this gene correlates with adult onset diabetes, that this gene reacts badly with that drug, you need a huge statistical database."

Hi Tim,

How is your thesis going? I'm interested in dry EEG recording & read quite alot of your journal but I'm not sure what the conclusion from your final measurements are? Which amplifier & ADC did you settle for?
