IBM is in the pipeline. Obviously they have deep pockets.

They're also being helped out by NHGRI grants, although I'm sure that money doesn't go all that far in developing a new technology and instrument to run it:

"The firm is one of several companies or researchers that have been awarded at least $5.7 million from the National Human Genome Research Institute this year to support their efforts in developing technologies for sequencing a human genome at low cost."

3rd article, guess they were stealth for quite a while. Competition is good. Hope they give PacBio a run for the money (thanks forum sponsors!)

The more skeptical amongst you might have noticed that this press release (containing few/no details beyond previous, very old announcements) came out at a similar time to the announcement of the Justice department's anti-trust probe into IBM...
