It promises to lower health costs and raise the efficacy of treatment at population scale in India
Twenty years ago this month, the human genome was fully sequenced. For as long as we have been human, we have been fascinated by our genetics and its role in making us who we are.

The sequencing of the full human genome unlocked the promise of a greater understanding of some fundamental questions about human biology.
