  • Just published: "The $1,000 Genome" by Kevin Davies

    My new book, The $1,000 Genome, is published today in the U.S. by Free Press. It's an up-close look at the remarkable advances over the past few years in next-generation sequencing and personal genomics, including my own experiences on having my genome decoded by several platforms, interviews with many "genome pioneers" and some thoughts on what happens next.

    You can find it here: http://amzn.to/KD1kgen

    I'm giving away two signed copies to loyal SeqAnswers readers. Just reply to me with reasons why you would like this book! Cheers,

    Kevin

    book

    It would be interesting to see how close your predictions are to reality considering the rapid pace at which sequencing technology is improving. If it is still available I would take a copy. Does the book also come with a DVD containing a copy of your genome to follow along?

      Hi Kevin!

      Thanks for the post and congratulations on your book! I'm promoting this to the front page.

        Congratulations on your new publication.

        I deal with whole, yet reference, genomes on a regular basis, but it is easy to forget the tremendous effort that goes behind creating these resources. Something I have never got round to doing is informing myself about the full scientific/bioinformatic potential of the $1000 genome and would be interested to read the stories of the academic and commercial feats required to bring this to fruition.

          Congratulations! It would be great to receive a copy that I could review on a blog I co-publish, followthedata.wordpress.com. There I cover things like patient social networks, predictive analytics, self-tracking, sequencing etc.

            Congrats! I've decided to use this as an excuse to try out the Kindle reader on my PC & Phone (I don't own a Kindle). Only about $13, so not an expensive experiment.

            Main complaint so far is I can't figure out how to know how much is left in the chapter -- somewhat desirable for fiction, but undesirable when trying to figure out where the next good stopping point is.

                  Not directly related to the book, but just want to say I like the Sep issue of Bio-IT World. The story of Hugh Rienhoff and his daughter really caught my eye.

                    Hi Kevin,

                    Ordered your book before I saw this announcement. But love to read a signed copy of your earlier book "Cracking the Genome: Inside the Race to Unlock Human DNA".

                      Exploring the Dynamics of the Tumor Microenvironment
                      by seqadmin




                      The complexity of cancer is clearly demonstrated in the diverse ecosystem of the tumor microenvironment (TME). The TME is made up of numerous cell types and its development begins with the changes that happen during oncogenesis. “Genomic mutations, copy number changes, epigenetic alterations, and alternative gene expression occur to varying degrees within the affected tumor cells,” explained Andrea O’Hara, Ph.D., Strategic Technical Specialist at Azenta. “As...

                      Exploring Human Diversity Through Large-Scale Omics
                      by seqadmin


                      In 2003, researchers from the Human Genome Project (HGP) announced the most comprehensive genome to date1. Although the genome wasn’t fully completed until nearly 20 years later2, numerous large-scale projects, such as the International HapMap Project and 1000 Genomes Project, continued the HGP's work, capturing extensive variation and genomic diversity within humans. Recently, newer initiatives have significantly increased in scale and expanded beyond genomics, offering a more detailed...
