Dna Sequencing

a: Dna sequencing ~
b: going house to house on a map

What: Boyce-Jacino compares BioNanomatrix' technology with Google Maps, in which a user can zoom to different levels of detail. "Currently, DNA sequencing is like going house to house on the map. The problem is that you don't know if you're on Elm Street in Ohio or Elm Street in New Jersey. In the genome, because 'Elm Street' might be duplicated, you need to be able to zoom out a little bit and understand where that sequence goes to make sure you know where you are in the genome."
