Company announces low-cost DNA decoding machine
New machine said to decode a person's DNA for $1,000 within a day; step toward wider use
By The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) ' A biotechnology company says it has developed a machine that will decode a person's DNA in a day for $1,000.

That price has long been cited as a key step toward making a person's genome useful for medical care.

Life Technologies Corp. said Tuesday it was taking orders for the technology, which it expects to deliver in about a year. The company says three major research institutions had already signed up for the $149,000 machine.

Technically speaking the machine is a sequencer. That means it can identify the sequence of the 3 billion chemical building blocks that make up a person's DNA.
