Very Brief Blog: Obama Speaks at Genomics Conference in San Diego

 This week, President Obama was a keynote speaker at a genomics conference in San Diego.  He spoke highly supportively of genomics and precision and medicine while criticizing our "old creaky" health system which sets up barriers to innovation.   The conference was the Illumina global users conference.  Illumina also announced new sequencing platforms (here).

I suspect President Obama was representing support for the current President Biden's reboot and refresh of Operation Moonshot for cancer.
