Conference: CHI's Exploring Next-Generation Sequencing – Providence; September 21, 2009
Summary: Ten years ago, a family emergency provided the spark for Jonathan Rothberg to conceive 454 Life Sciences, the first next-genration sequencing technology to reach the market. Rothberg's platform has produced many scientific highlights, including groundbreaking work on the Neanderthal genome, metagenomics, disappearing honey bees, transplantation mishaps, and of course Jim Watson's genome. Rothberg reflects on the past decade and offers a glimpse at his new project, Ion Torrent Systems.
