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.
Rhetoric and brinksmanship on the Korean Peninsula For 25 years, the US has viewed North Korea's nuclear program with increasing alarm. Now President Trump says this country has lost its "strategic patience." We hear what he's actually doing… and what might come next.
The flight bumping heard around 'round the world Recent video of a passenger forcibly removed from a United Airlines plane is a worst-case example of what's happened since consolidation into just four US-based carriers.

White House flip flops: NATO, Syria and China In less than 100 days, President Trump has contradicted himself on a host of foreign policy issues — Syria, NATO, China and Vladimir Putin’s Russia. Is it a strength — or a weakness — for the United States when the world of power politics never knows what to expect?
After Syria strike a new Trump doctrine emerges The President who promised an end to entanglements in the Middle East and snuggled up to Vladimir Putin has now outraged Russia with surprise missile attacks on Syria. That's raised questions about who's running the White House? We hear a variety of answers.
