Very impressive site. There are no prices on Macrogen's web site, but their advertising suggests US$5 a sample. I can't find a street address for Macrogen in Korea, but as Korean's don't have western style addresses so this is not surprising. Macrogen have recently added 454 Genome Sequencer instrument capacity to their services which offers excellent turn around times for bacterial scale or smaller genome projects. I have seen the quality of the sequencing they produce and it is of high quality.
