Celera opens human genome data base

It might be interesting to compare the data from back then - for the odd publication in recent science history.

More interesting is that Slashdot's post ranks highest in Google news and seems to be ahead of my other sources. To me this seems more interesting than the data, as there will not be much to be gained - that data is a couple of years old and the finishing work on the individual genomes as well as the advances of Ensembl will probably means no improvement to the data quality for practical purposes.

The best Celera gets out of it is a better page rank and the academic community gets the satisfaction of a failed business model.

But you know: Industry won after all: The DNA sequencers in the public genome project came from Applera, Celeras mother company and they had to invest quite a bit in order to finish with Venter.
