Clarification of Sentence

JAMA. 2015;314(24):2693. doi:10.1001/jama.2015.16286

In the In Reply letter entitled “Promise of Precision Medicine” published in the October 27, 2015, issue of JAMA,1 a sentence in the second paragraph is incorrect. In the second paragraph, the second sentence should be “In fact, the cost of sequencing a human genome has decreased almost 1 million fold, and the National Human Genome Research Institute1 regularly updates a graph showing how much faster the cost of human sequencing has decreased than the law defined by Gordon Moore. (The law by Moore, co-founder of Intel, describes how the number of transistors on an integrated circuit doubles every 18 months.)” This article was corrected online.
