That’s pretty cool. I can’t wait for the day when medicine is actually designed to make people healthier and perhaps even cure the causes of disease rather than expensively treating the disease because it makes more money. I don’t know if genomics will make this possible, or likely, but it’s somewhat of a step in the right direction.

Hi Nathaniel,

Thank for the comment. Genomics is definitely key to personalized medicine. We’ve already taken some major steps. Stay tuned!
