Personal genomics downswing?   posted by Razib @ 3/06/2008 01:37:00 AM

Hsien-Hsien Lei has a post up, deCODE CEO Predicts Downswing in Personal Genomics Market.

1) In 1998 search was a dead business model, a "hook" to create a portal. 10 years on how are things looking?

2) Sometimes businesses are run badly. The market opportunity which the business is attempting to capitalize upon does not mysteriously disappear when a particular business fails or falters.

3) Many technologies are oversold in the short term, but undervalued in the long term. What does "short" and "long" term mean in the context of personal genomics?
