One of the most thought-provoking talks given at the Personal Genomes meeting this weekend was given by Hank Greely of Stanford University. It was a talk that focused on what to do with the onslaught of information that is coming as whole genome sequencing becomes more affordable. I will not go into detail on his talk (I am sure the talk was “tweeted” in real-time), rather, I’d like to focus on one part of the talk and that relates to “who will pay for all of this sequencing?”
