Ask GNXP - personal genome sequence   posted by the @ 7/25/2006 01:01:00 AM

In previous 10 Questions, Razib has asked:

If you could have your full genome sequenced for $1000, would you do it? (assume privacy concerns are obviated)

By genotyping ~500,000 tag SNPs, it's actually possible to approximate a full genome sequence for $1000 using current technologies. So my question(s) is (are): if you could have your genome "sequenced" (to a good approximation) for $1000, would you do it? What would you want to know from the data?
