Whole genome sequencing as a method of predicting disease risks isn't as informative as thought, a study of thousands of identical twins has found.

Team prototypes instant genome test

Scientists from Imperial College London have prototyped a tool that they say could ultimately sequence a person’s genome in minutes, at a fraction of the cost of current techniques.

Personal genetic medicine comes a step closer

A Stanford University professor has sequenced his entire genome in just two weeks, and for a cost of less than $50,000.
