Many diseases can be more effectively treated or managed if diagnosed early. Genome sequencing can often help patients catch conditions earlier and DNA companies such as deCODEme and 23andme have enabled consumers to access some of this information, but now myGenome from Veritas Genetics can reveal entire genome sequences via a smartphone app for under USD 1000. In the last 20 years, the price of genome sequencing has dropped from USD 3.7 billion in 2001 to USD 350,000 in 2007. But the relatively affordable myGenome is the first product to make entire genome sequencing a viable consumer product. To take…
