I'm aware this question may sound stupid but I'm wondering why the research & development in genetics is advancing so slowly compared with the IT world. Is it a problem of funding , ethics, interest ? You can get a PC with just few bucks or get inexpensive computing power “in the cloud” from services such Amazon AWS, Google etc but I doubt that you can get a lab/development environment with the same amount. There doesn't seem to be any "cloud service"/remote either .
