Nanopore Sequencing: the way to $1000 genome sequencing ?

Following up on information from crnano

The Harvard Nanopore Group is working on the development of solid state nanopores and our studies of DNA translocation through these nanopores suggest how a nanopore could be the core of an instrument capable of inexpensive de novo sequencing. They are investigating and developing the basic science and technology required to build a nanopore based instrument that should be able to sequence a mammalian genome for
