Your DNA is never actually fully sequenced, because that is currently too cost prohibitive...
I'm not sure they bank it. They offer an upgrade that includes more tests, but to take advantage of it you have to send a new sample. An upgrade that did not require sending a new sample would surely have a much higher conversion rate, so I'd expect they would offer that if it were feasible.
Also, based on their recent statements, it seems that 23andMe doesn't actually do any of the lab work, they contract out to a lab partner. Based on the amount of capital they've raised, I would have assumed that they did everything in house. Anybody know more about this?
Maybe one or two -70 freezers full of eppendorf tubes. It's not a significant cost.
Q> Does anyone know the actual/current pricepoint for this?
And, for the places where you can get a $3K genome sequenced, it isn't likely that they will service outside (non-research) customers.
1000$ - 5500$
The page cites only 69 people so far had it fully sequenced, and it cost about $100k a few years ago
