MIT Technology Review on My Son's Whole Genome Sequencing

Recently MIT Technology Review contacted me to talk about my son’s whole genome sequencing. After some digging it turned out that it is possible that my son could be “the first healthy person ever born with his entire genetic makeup deciphered in advance.” You can read the whole story, For One Baby, Life Begins with Genome Revealed. Though I do agree with Jay Shendure, “My guess is that a few people may have done this privately already.” Hopefully this story will prompt these individuals to come out of the shadows. There’s nothing to hide.
