The Quest to Cure Aging

Imagine a world where the aging process is slowed down sufficiently enough to allow a person to have a much longer more fulfilling life. Imagine a world where a couple could choose to delay having a child not for just 3 years but 10 years or possibly more? With a focus on curing both aging and cancer, new California based start up Halcyon  Molecular seeks to sequence DNA directly using electron microscopy. Their technology could lead to a fast, affordable and accurate method of sequencing an individual’s entire genome for about $1,000.
