genetic materials and the race to lower the price


The human genome has been mapped for over 10 years.
The cost started out at $100,000.00 dollars
+…and now can be done for 5 or 6 thousand dollars and less but the prediction is that within the next months, the cost could fall to as low as $100.00.

The cost of a whole mapping would fall in the range of a blood test.

What does this mean for our community?

How will the mutations on the CFTR gene fit in with the whole?
Who will analyze this data?
Who will own the information?
There is a race.
This is an exciting time.


Why are you asking questions that we already know the answers to? You can get your genome sequenced for $300 btw....
