SCIENTISTS WILL BE ABLE TO USE THE SITE TO ACCESS PREVIOUSLY SEQUENCED GENOMES.

Earlier this week, the Food and Drug Administration released a new site to encourage community-based exploration of genomic information. Scientists can use PrecisionFDA to access previously sequenced genomes, share their results with other members of the community, and solicit both feedback and advice.

The agency has been working on the site for several years, according to NextGov,, with help from a Silicon Valley-based startup called DNANexus. For this initiative, FDA has named over a dozen partners from the research and biotech community, including Stanford, 23andMe, Ilumina, and Roche.

Jean:

Visited your site for the first time yesterday. Very informative. I look forward to reading your books.

Glad I came upon this forum recently, it's been a wealth of information and very educational.

Thank you for your site and contributions to the research at large.

It's heartening to see 23andMe included in the consortium.

Certainly is. I said some time ago that President Obama’s Precision Medicine Initiative was right in line with the aims and capabilities of 23andMe.
