Genetic Testing Awareness

In an effort to increase the awareness of genetic testing, 23 and Me ( http://www.23andme.com/ ) is flying a blimp over the bay area. I thought this is very telling as to the current state of the life science and healthcare industry. Clearly genetic testing is becoming more and more common everyday. Overall I think this is very good news life science and healthcare industry and for organzations such as my company Arrayit ( http://www.arrayit.com/ ). Our efforts in research and development in the life science industry are the technologies of choice that are currently used to decipher human disease on the molecular level. It is my belief that just like industrial farming technology has increased to the level where nobody in the world currently has to go hungry, microarray technology can reduce cost of healthcare to the point where nobody will have to go without it.
