The Future Impact of Sequencing Everyone

Michael McManus

 

As the use of genome sequencing becomes mainstream in clinical practice we are faced with the daunting realization of a future where we are “sequencing everyone”. What would it take to sequence 7.6 billion people on the planet? This presentation will describe a qualitative methodology to design the required systems for compute and storage as well as the energy usage to sequence 7.6 billion people.
