Carrie Blout on discovering what’s in your genome

What would happen if everyone got their genome sequenced? This question is no longer the stuff of science fiction. Instead, it is a research question that Senior Genetic Counselor Carrie Blout and her colleagues at the Genomes2People initiative at Brigham and Women’s hospital are trying to answer. We discuss the medical, psychological, and economic impact of whole genome sequencing, the rollout of a new preventative genomics clinic at Brigham and Women’s, and the future of genomic medicine.
