Archon Genomics X Prize in brief

As I understand it, the contest is technology-driven to get 100 genomes in 30 days. The benefits to us in the genetics community is 100 excellent genomes sequenced many times over, from 105 year-olds who act as supercontrols for age-related diseases. We also get a software contest so we get better browsers. I think if the 100 centenarians can be taken from 10 different projects, then we can leverage the projects via the shared controls and get more data sharing and trust
