A team from Rice University, Baylor College of Medicine, Texas Children's Hospital and the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard has developed a new way to sequence genomes that can generate a human genome from scratch for roughly the cost of an MRI exam.

Whereas the original Human Genome Project took 10 years and cost $4 billion, the new 3D assembly technique, which is described in a study this week in Science, produces a comparable genome sequence in a few weeks for less than $10,000.

Erez Lieberman Aiden, assistant professor of genetics at Baylor and a senior scientist at Rice's Center for Theoretical Biological Physics (CTBP), led an international team based at Baylor's Center for Genome Architecture in developing 3D assembly.
