In my opinion, personalized medicine needs much more priori knowledge of relationship between some genotypes with some medicines. Therefore, what can we benefit about the personalized medicine from DNA sequencing before we know enough knowledge of the relationship?

What type of regulatory policies (for interpretation of the genomic data) would likely to be implemented when it only costs $1,000 to sequence a genome, and more people are likely to need genetic consultation?

Do you foresee a day when it will be impossible for an everyday American to get by in life without having their personal genome sequenced and stored somewhere?  Will it be a requirement for essential services (marriage license; driver's license; health care; etc.)?

Will the sequences of 1000 genomes help in understanding the etiology of each disease?

The situation appears to be fancy and hi-tech, but are we really ready (scientifically) to use this information for the betterment of the society? predicting possibility of occurrence of  several health situations from the genetic sequence, aren't we over-estimating our limited knowledge of genotype and phenotype connection?

Are you familiar with the Personal Genome Machine (PGM) by Ion Torrent and what kind of an impact can you see this machine making on the $1000 Genome?

Did the recent personal genome sequencing help make the human genome reference sequence more complete?

What do you think about NGS and regulation over the FDA in a time of personalized medicine ?

Is it possible to obtain still reliable DNA from histologically treated tumor-material taken during surgery, even after a copule of months storage?
