Joanne reviews two books on personalized genomics: "The $1000 Genome" by Kevin Davies and "Here Is a Human Being" by Misha Angrist
The story of the Human Genome Project is a very fascinating one. These books relay only some of the story and instead focus on the new technologies that enable the quicker and cheaper sequencing of full genomes and the implications this has for individuals and society.
