Genetic fingerprints will help extend life

Abstract:
A drop of blood from a thumbprick will be enough to test 10,000 elements of our health a decade or two from now, says a leading scientist. A pioneer of the US biotechnology industry, Dr Leroy Hood, told the Bio 2004 conference in San Francisco yesterday. "We will in 10 years have nanotechnology tools that will let us sequence your genome in a fraction of an hour for less than $1000, he said.
