There is a private company called Pacific Biosciences that is doing something very similar, single DNA molecule sequencing. They managed to get reads from a single DNA molecule, and this was sort of the hot topic at a few computational biolgoy conferences I went to last year. It's not clear who is going to win this race, but I think a lot of people think this is the future of DNA sequencing.
