Big things start small

Abstract:
It took an army of scientists, an arsenal of computers, hundreds of millions of dollars and years of toil to crack the chemical code of an anonymous human being.

But your own personal genome on a CD may be just around the corner, to warn you of health problems decades before they happen. This could spell healthy profits as well: Market research firm Frost & Sullivan says genetic testing will be a $1 billion industry by 2007.

David Bishop is president of the New Jersey Nanotechnology Consortium, which aims to make a prototype of a genome decoder chip by then. "A lot of people think our grandchildren can live forever because we will be able to turn off the part of the genome that causes age."
