What could be done with RNA and DNA sequencing that's 1000x cheaper than it's now?

In How to Invent the Future Alan Kay proposes that a good way of inventing the feature is to take an exponential and project it into the feature. Afterwards it's useful to ask what can be done with the new capabilities.

On important exponential is the price of DNA and RNA sequencing that fell faster than Moore's law over the last 30 years.

What can be done in a future is radically cheaper sequencing?
