The advent of massively parallel sequencing technologies has made it possible for individual genomes to be sequenced to high levels of coverage. The pace of whole-genome sequencing is so rapid that this page is woefully out of date. I keep it up for historic reasons only!

Note that another genome has also been sequenced, that of DNA sequencing pioneer J. Craig Venter, but the platform was traditional 3730 sequencing. I don’t expect to see another of those.
