Illumina Bringing Genetic Testing to San Diego
Illumina, a genomic research company, and the city of San Diego have partnered to bring the city it’s first genomic research study. The study will allow participants in an upcoming blood drive to have their whole genome sequenced to contribute to a city wide genetic database. The program is part of President Obama’s “Precision Medicine Initiative” and we can expect similar programs to be created nationwide over the coming years. Learn more here
