Very Brief Blog: ASHG Releases 96-Page Report on Economics of Human Genomics

American Society of Human Genetics (ASHG) has released a 96-page report on "The Economic Impact and Functional Applications of Human Genetics and Genomics."  

  • See the PDF online here.  
  • See early coverage at Genomeweb here.

The report was supported by TEConomy Partners.   As Genomeweb summarizes: "Areas of impact include minable big data, with the assembly of exabytes of genomic information available for analysis to provide insights into genome structure and function and the association of gene variants with human diseases and health disorders; the identification of disease predisposition through carrier testing, pre- and postnatal testing, and child and adult testing; and the diagnosis of both rare and common disorders."
