The first human genome was sequenced in 2001 at a cost of $3 billion. Today, human genome sequencing costs less than $1000, and in a few years the price will drop below $100. Thus, personal genome sequencing will soon be widely adopted as it enables better diagnosis, disease prevention, and personalized therapies. Furthermore, if genomic data is shared with researchers, the causes of many diseases will be identified and new drugs developed. These opportunities are creating a genomic data market worth billions of dollars.

After a man with #leukemia got a bone-marrow transplant, #DNA tests showed that all the DNA in his blood had been replaced by the donor's—it also showed that his DNA had been replaced in many other parts of his body. Fascinating @nytimes article👇https://t.co/FaVpXxyUze
