According to Forbes, personal genomics will be one of the five technologies that will shape the next decade. They predict (not too boldly) that personal genome sequencing will become widely available and pave the way to personalized medicine. I wonder where they would get an idea like that? They mention Pacific Biosciences, Knome (George Church), and venture capital darling Complete Genomics as players in this field. They somehow fail to mention privacy concerns or informatics/IT challenges. I guess that's what you get from a business publication.
