Quote for the Day

"The cost of DNA sequencing is going to change the world much faster than I would have thought. We can resequence someone now for $150,000. Can you reach the $1,000 genome? I'm skeptical of that. But just $15,000 would change the world. You'd do a thousand Greeks and a thousand Swedes and find out what's different about them. Anytime a child has problems school or something where you worry something is wrong, you'll do a DNA diagnosis," - James Watson, of Watson and Crick. I think the question of racial and ethnic genetic difference will soon not be an ideological fight but an empirical enterprise. (Hat tip: Derb.)
