About Open Human Genome

Open Human Genome is an exploration of personal genomics. This project was started at a time when, thanks to rapid advances in high-throughput sequencing, the long-awaited goal of the $1,000 genome was within sight. The project will document the author’s journey through the world of personal genomics, with the aim of improving public access to the science behind personalized medicine.

“Open Human Genome” is inspired by the open-source software movement and by a growing number of individuals who have made their genomic information public. The author is committed to make all of his genomic information publicly available.
