Completed over a decade ago, the $3 billion Human Genome Project gave the world a complete map of the entire genetic makeup of a human being. The Project started researchers on the path to genomic medicine—which reaches beyond the study of single genes to understanding how a person’s thousands of genes interact with each other and the genetic environment. Knowledge of a person’s genomic profile can help doctors make decisions about the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of disease. With the cost of sequencing becoming affordable, individualized medicine may soon become routine. We asked Aris Baras, an international expert on the subject and a keynote speaker at Health Tech ’15, to tell us more about what genomic sequencing could mean for the future of healthcare.
