what is the use of genomic sequencing? Does anyone provide personalized medicine based on genetic data? Not yet. So its mostly for academic and research fun. BTW 23andme.com which is funded by Google already has a database of 150K people, whose DNA is sequenced. They charge like 100 bucks for partial(relevant) sequencing.

Its good to see this technology using the available cost reductions. Its amazing how many medical technologies resist cost redution. We need Moore's law for medical instead of a federal care act.
