Indeed. Those costs are misleading. There should be all sorts of asterisks detailing the assumptions. Might as well throw in the higher per-base cost of using PacBio to complete a genome.

I've always hated that graph because of the misapplication of "Moore's Law". Stupid. But I have seen it in so many presentations that I just grit my teeth.
