Compressive phase transition, a million genomes and 3rd generation sequencing

Steve Hsu recently made a video presentation in Genetic architecture and predictive modeling of quantitative traits that explains why reaching a million genomes is becoming important in light of what we know of compressive sensing phase transition [1]. Go watch it. In the meantime, today I'll be attending a workshop on Bioinformatics for Third Generation Sequencing in Lille. It willfeature presentations from Clive Brown from Oxford Nanopore Technologies) on the latest methods and devices for nanopore sensing and Nick Loman on Bioinformatics approaches for real-time nanopore sequencing. Nanopore sequencing has been mentioned here before as it is the technology that makes sequencing not-NP-Hard anymore [2]
