How to read the genome and build a human being

How to read the genome and build a human being | Integrative Medicine | Scoop.it
Secrets, disease and beauty are all written in the human genome, the complete set of genetic instructions needed to build a human being. Now, as scientist and entrepreneur Riccardo Sabatini shows us, we have the power to read this complex code, predicting things like height, eye color, age and even facial structure — all from a vial of blood. And soon, Sabatini says, our new understanding of the genome will allow us to personalize treatments for diseases like cancer. We have the power to change life as we know it. How will we use it?
Dennis T OConnor's insight:

When asked, "Do you want to know your genes?"  What do you answer?  Is it better to know or not know?
