I would like to know what are the options for an average person in a developing country to get access to this technology, and be able to get their genome sequenced.

you can collaborate with genomics institutes.. all depends on what you want to sequence.. –  WYSIWYG Apr 9 '13 at 7:09
@WYSIWYG Yep, that's what I was thinking, you know. Maybe the easiest way is to contact some research group that is interested in the medical condition one could have, if that is the case. –  rraallvv Apr 9 '13 at 9:03
This is pretty much shopping advice, and that is generally not on-topic on SE sites. –  Mad Scientist Apr 9 '13 at 16:43

23 and me would be an obvious place to start if you were doing it as a private individual. Prices start at $100.

It looks good, I'll take a closer look, thanks. –  rraallvv Apr 9 '13 at 10:59
@rraallvv, I don't believe they do full genome sequencing. They only sequence marker genes, as per a presentation they gave a few months ago. –  dd3 Apr 9 '13 at 14:23
@dd3 Very useful information, thanks. –  rraallvv Apr 9 '13 at 23:28
