First time in history

– sequencing of patient genome allows for discovery of a disease and allows the effective treatment. I am trully amazed and you will be as well when you read this story.

Part 1.

Part 2.

Part 3.

 

To put into perspective:

Human Genome Project  1990 – 2003 – 3 000 000 000 USD

2010 – Sequencing the genome of one sick kid – or more accurately – finding the one mutation that causes previously not know disease – 75 000 USD

2020 – ?
