Personal Genomics

Two Part series on Personal Genomics

The Vancouver Sun recent ran a two part series on personal genomics. The stories were written by Randy Shore. 

In the course of his early research, the chief scientific officer of Genome BC routinely drew his own blood to compare with the DNA of people who were known to have disorders such as cystic fibrosis or spinal cerebral ataxia.

“I would draw blood weekly … and provide that to extract DNA,” said Brad Popovich. “The reason I was very comfortable doing that is that knew I didn’t have any one of those diseases. So, I was a good control.”
