I should back up for a minute; I don’t want to assume that everyone is already hip to the PGP and the broader concept of personal genomics or why they should give a transgenic rat’s patootie. Fortunately Dana Waring and Jack Bateman from Ting Wu’s lab at Harvard have created a website that does much of the heavy lifting by taking up questions like these: What is personal genomics? What will it mean for medicine? What are the risks and benefits? What are the ethical issues? What are the technologies behind it and when will all of this become reality? The site is already a useful primer on personal genomics for the newbie; I suspect it will soon become much more.
