Genome sequencing makes way out of healthcare lab into clinical practice
from Financial Times
Twenty years after scientists started to read the DNA of bacteria — and 15 years after the completion of the first draft of the human genome, the greatest achievement of modern biology — the field of genomics is beginning to deliver on its vast medical promise. Applications of genomics — reading and analysing the DNA that stores genetic information in all living cells — are moving from lab research into clinical practice for diagnosis and therapy, as a range of "next generation sequencing" technologies help cut costs and improve performance.
