The Feasibility of WGS Association Studies for Complex Traits

Whole genome sequencing (WGS) reveals every base pair of the human genome and offers the ultimate information resolution to researchers. In January 2014, Illumina announced that the $1,000 genome is available. It was a significant achievement in highthroughput sequencing technology since it took more than 10 years to break this long-sought threshold after the completion of the first sequenced human genome, which cost nearly $3 billion. However, the $1,000 price tag is a marketing figure that does not account for analysis or data storage, both of which tend to be more expensive than the consumables.
