The $1,000 Genome

Reading DNA is the fasting growing technology – ever. In The $1,000 Genome by Kevin Davis, he jumps into how we went from the $1,000,000,000 to a soon to be $1000 Genome. More importantly he explains the role of DNA sequencing in the era of personalized medicine.

DNA Sequencing is a technology still in its infancy. There are many players, from the technology giant Illumina to the consumer facing 23andme. It’s no accident that I am strong proponent of Getting SNP’d.

What is not so well known are all garage started genetic sequencing companies driving innovation forward. Some provide total turnkey solutions for researchers while others are building genetic sequencers the size of USB drives.

All this data is great, but it’s how its used is where the real value is. Diagnosing disease, developing drugs, studying populations, dealing with Cancer – just to name a few.

You will find also me in this book about my project with DNASnips.

Anyone can read this book as it meant for everyone – A great weekend study.
