Hi John,

interesting stuff and good reading. 

For the IT interests on here: these sequencing machine are chucking out large 
amount of data per day. The project I am involved in can chew out 400 GB or so 
on raw data per day. That is a small machine. That then needs to be processed 
before you actually can analyze it. So there is quite some data movement etc 
involved here. 

All the best
