The $1000 Genome Odyssey

Scientists have discovered that the relationship between the human genome and disease has proven to be far more complicated than originally anticipated back in 2000, when Bill Clinton announced that the first human genome was sequenced by the Human Genome Project, and that diseases would be, from then on, much easier to cure. But as with any other field, the more we learn about something, the more we learn how little we actually know. Ivan Karabaliev at Eagle Genomics shares with you what he has found so far about the Holy Grail of genomic sequencing.
