Here’s what I see in 2009. After 2008, the impossible seems possible now!
1. 23andMe will begin selling their tests on drugstore shelves.
2. President Barack Obama will be offered genome sequencing as part of his annual physical examination. (Coincidentally, John Hawks has more on “privacy, politicians, and genetic testing.”)
3. Apple will launch iSEQ – instant DNA testing and analysis in a handheld device complete with apps for social networking, etc.
5. The U.S. government passes laws to obtain DNA from all its citizens which it says will help protect the innocent and punish criminals.
For a look back at 2008, see my editor’s note in the January 4th issue of KromoNews: Weekly Human Genetics Newsletter.
