A stop-motion insight into the molecular world of DNA and the genome. The genome’s complexity goes hand in hand with the technology to understand it- what can now fit on a memory stick would once have been too much for a tower of computers. The human genome project took 13 years and $2.7bn to complete, a full sequence can now be done in 2 days, for a millionth of the cost.
