With cost of genomic DNA sequencing coming down significantly in the past 2~3 years, we are getting closer and closer to the $1000 per genome era. I am not talking about those 23andme stuff which only scans a few sites of your 6 billion basepair genome. I am talking about $1000 level full coverage genome
One set of fully annotated human genome takes 1GB~1.5GB after compression. So not really taking up lots of space. Factoring in some potential RNA Sequencing and / or microbiome DNA sequencing data, we are looking at ~2GB per person of storage space. Decompressed genome actually takes quite some space but still relatively easy to handle with modern computation power.
So we are talking a person's complete life blueprint that can be obtained ~$1000 that can be transferred relatively easily through cloud service or simply on a USB drive.
The usage would be limitless, precision medicine, gene editing, genome editing, bio-metric security, mass survillance and etc.
With all that, how would you want your personal genome handled? Make choice or leave a comment below. Curious to see how you guys think
