How will you prepare American kids for the genomic era?
How can Americans understand genetic tests if genetics and evolution are poorly (or incompletely) taught in schools. The cost of sequencing the human genome will be less than $1,000 by the end of 2012 and the price is likely to continue to fall. Within 10 years, genome sequencing and numerous genetic tests will be available to patients. Already companies like 23 and me and other companies provide estimates of disease/traits based on genome sequence.
