The Archon Genomics XPRIZE presented by Express Scripts is an incentivized Prize Competition, with $10 Million to be awarded to the first Team to design and build a rapid and inexpensive technology proving they can accurately sequence the whole human genome.
Fully understand our entire human genome will be a powerful tool for medical applications, much like the progression from the X Ray machine to the MRI scan changed diagnostic procedures. When doctors are able to analyze your unique genetic blueprint together you can make informed decisions about your personal health care.
By decoding secrets locked away in the human genome, therapies and drugs may be developed creating radical medical breakthroughs for the benefit of humanity.
