The Guardian: DNA research: this is the age of the genome. And there are exciting times ahead

“This is the age of the genome, a time when doctors are turning to techniques that will allow them to sequence a patient’s whole complement of genes swiftly and cheaply, making it possible to diagnose susceptibilities to diseases such as diabetes and proneness to conditions such as cancer long before they have established themselves in a person’s body. We already have the ability to generate the basic genetic data for such tasks. The trick is to make sense of the billions of units of information created in the process.”
