Technology has changed so that we can now sequence genomes relatively cheaply and quickly.  Understanding more about our genome is generally considered to be a good thing, helping us to diagnose disease, find novel treatments or tailor existing treatments to the appropriate individual.  With this kind of advance, however, there is always a flip side. Are we ready to handle this information?  Should we put the genie back in the bottle?
