Formatted abstract
The affordable whole-genome sequence is (nearly) here and already costs less than many commercial DNA tests for specific variants or genes. It seems very plausible to us that in the near future millions of people will have their genome sequenced, not just because the cost is coming down but also because individuals (in rich countries) are increasingly becoming ‘health consumers’. Here, we muse on what we could infer from having whole-genome sequence data for a million individuals...
