I discovered a way to sequence DNA that could be mass produced for about $100 per whole genome with the ordered base pairs. I suppose the sequencing could be done in about 4 to 5 seconds if designed properly. I see that $1000 genomes may be possible in 2013, but this is changing so fast that I would guess that it is a race to the bottom and a lot of people are going to lose money. I see that nanopore was at about $4000 and will be obsoleted by new techniques. I just wonder what is going to be done with the data. There is already so much data that it is how the data is understood is the real challenge. It should be possible to identify the flow of changes in organisms and perhaps the boundary condition that allows mutation transforms. Obviously a mutation must be viable and happen in sequence with some vestigial weight allowed. The advantage of the technique that I realized is that it also allows it to be partitioned and recombined in new ways for experimental analysis of a slightly modified gene structure and how it influences cell process. It is a quickly changing business and the mitochondrial OS is certainly the next step. The ability to modify the genome in action allows a damaged genome to be restored on the fly as well as repairing a changed whole body genome to its original state.
Blender 2.6 is quite a bit different to use, but is better when a person gets used to the interface. It is more intuitive as well as having some nice new features. I tried out localized sound and that is pretty neat as well as how easy it is to implement physics. The interface has not changed enough to make it irritating, but it does take some getting used to.
I would guess that the "Ringworld autodoc" is a not just a real scientific possibility, but a given in the not so distant future.
