Edited Transcript from “The Pathway to Genomic Medicine,” Richard Gibbs, PhD*
And so of course it’s all directed to this magic model where somebody walks into your clinic, and I guess this is the near-term model, where you [the physician or researcher] send their sample over for a complete human genome sequence, and you use that to inform your decisions. The further-term model will be that they will actually walk in with that little device, or you’ll look at it online, and they’ll already have logged in their family genetic information, their own DNA sequence, and you’ll just have to look it up to get it.
