“If you go to a scientific meeting, even with the greatest critics, and you ask, how many people in this audience believe that your entire genome will be part of your everyday medical care in fifty years, every person will raise their hand. So the only questions we’re debating are: how do we get there, how soon can we get there, and what evidence base must we have in place before we get there? What’s really exciting to me is getting there sooner rather than later. If we get there 20 years sooner, we are saving thousands of people’s lives.” – Robert Green
