In discussing a vision for ubiquitous DNA sequencing, the first part of this manuscript envisions applications that will benefit from moving the sequencers to the samples in a range of domains; and the second part outlines the critical barriers that need to be addressed in order to reach the goal of ubiquitous sequencing sensors.
Genomics has recently celebrated reaching the $1000 genome milestone, making affordable DNA sequencing a reality. With this goal successfully completed, the next goal of the sequencing revolution can be sequencing sensors - miniaturized sequencing devices that are manufactured for real time applications and deployed in large quantities at low costs.
