Healthcare: Ethics and the thousand-dollar genome
Submitted by J.W. Bizzaro; posted on Friday, August 09, 2013
Submitter PBS has an 8-minute video that explains many of the ethical issues that will accompany readily-available personal genome sequences.

EXCERPT:
When researchers first mapped the human genome, it took almost 10 years and cost $3 billion. Today the process takes three weeks, and the price tag is rapidly approaching $1,000. We visit the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and talk to doctors and parents about the ethics of sequencing human genomes, especially for children with genetic defects.
