Here are some links to websites with information about Cytomics, this will
provide you with some information and background about what I mean with a
"Human Cytome Project" (see below in this email).
I got the idea about using massive parallel "readers" on a
"high-throughput" backbone for Cytomics while I visited the Sanger Center
a few years ago where I saw a huge room "buzzing" with DNA-sequencing
I wanted to design and develop a cell-screening system, based on a
microscopy-based reader which could do for Cytomics what DNA-sequencing
machines did for Genomics.
