“Project Jim:” A Personal Genome

Edited Transcript from “The Pathway to Genomic Medicine,” Richard Gibbs, PhD*
So this is what we used in the Watson Project. Our collaborators at 454 did the actual sequencing and paid for it. They (454) did the Watson Project as a stunt project to get some publicity, which sure worked. Whatever else you say about the project, that part was certainly successful. They generated all the data and allowed us to do the analysis.
