FROM Kevin Davies
Genome Companies Dominate the Southland Last week, we talked about the development of genome sequencing , which took 10 years and $2 billion twenty years ago. Since then, it’s developed at an astonishing pace, centered in Southern California. Kevin Davies is editor-in-chief of Bio-IT World and author of The $1000 Genome : The Revolution in DNA Sequencing and the New Era of Personalized Medicine.
The $1,000 Genome and 'Personalized Medicine' It took $2 billion and ten years to complete the Human Genome Project . Now, just ten years later, many individuals have had their genomes sequenced, and the cost keeps dropping. Kevin Davies is editor of Bio-IT World , which covers the role of technology in the life sciences. He's also the author of The $1000 Genome : The Revolution in DNA Sequencing and the New Era of Personalized Medicine.
The 'deconstruction' of the administrative state President Trump has failed to fill high-level positions in important agencies — and some people he has named want to phase out the agencies they're supposed to lead. We look at the possible consequences for delivering services and providing security — and at top aide Steve Bannon's plans for "deconstructing the administrative state."

Some reporters call it the beginning of a long-term effort to change the demographic make-up of the United States.
