Submission + - Genome Researchers Have Too Much Data (nytimes.com)

An anonymous reader writes: The New York Times reports "The field of genomics is caught in a data deluge. DNA sequencing is becoming faster and cheaper at a pace far outstripping Moore’s law. The result is that the ability to determine DNA sequences is starting to outrun the ability of researchers to store, transmit and especially to analyze the data. Now, it costs more to analyze a genome than to sequence a genome. There is now so much data, researchers cannot keep it all. One says "“We are going to have to come up with really clever ways to throw away data so we can see new stuff.”"
