    EXCERPT

    "Today, sequencing a human genome can cost less than $5,000 and take only a day or two. This means genome analysis is now in the cost range of a sophisticated medical test, said Eric Green, director of the National Human Genome Research Institute, in a teleconference on Friday. Doctors can now using DNA analysis to diagnose challenging cases, such as mysterious neurodevelopmental disorders, mitochondrial disease, or other disease or unknown origin in children.
