Whole Genome Sequencing - Game Changing Event

June 16, 2011 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: LIFE.DL , ILMN , PACB

I have often maintained a bit of skepticism on whole genome sequecing.  It is a growth area to be sure, but one that always seemed to me where hype led substance.  The 'we're all going to get our genomes sequenced' was not a surety to me, at least not anytime soon.  As the sequencing technology has continued to get cheaper and more practical, many more genomes would indeed be sequenced.  Still to me genome sequencing was perhaps always going to be an information gathering / research effort, with eventual findings being transitioned to simpler diagnostic tests which provide decision tree type answers, be they PCR, array, or otherwise based.  Don't get me wrong, the research market is a respectively large one, but the hype always looked forward to the much larger consumer and diagnostic markets.  I fully expected the next wave of growth in whole genome sequencing to be in the drug development clinical arena, such as part of studies trying to understand who was and wasn't repsonding and also to appreciate why, with oncology being the leading area of study.  [more]



Daniel Kraft - TED talk: Medicine's Future

Taken all together this seems quite futuristic, but Daniel is really only talking about things that exist now or are well into development.  They are not yet integrated, but that is coming as well.  [more]
