Kevin Davies on the HGP 10th Anniversary and the March to the $1,000 Genome


May 1, 2013 | On DNA Day, April 25, a parade of leading genome scientists gathered at NIH to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the completion of the Human Genome Project (HGP). Rounding out an outstanding list of speakers, including NIH Director Francis Collins, ENCODE project leader Ewan Birney, Princeton geneticist David Botstein and experts in evolutionary and population genetics, healthcare and cancer, was Bio-IT World editor Kevin Davies, who reviewed the impact and public perceptions of the HGP and the inexorable march towards the $1,000 genome. There was also some mild leg-pulling of the current NIH Director, whose next book almost certainly will not be entitled “The Language of Love.” Full video: http://bit.ly/KDHGP10
