Advances in technology has reduced the cost of DNA sequencing down by orders of magnitude and brought the practice of personal genomes and personalized medicine into immediate future. Nevertheless, there is no consensus on the concept of personal genomes and what are the substantial scientific questions and applications. Here we first challenge the misleading re-sequencing approach on personal genomes by a full spectrum of genetic variations and their indications on functions. We then demonstrated that a complete picture by large-scale data acquirement and new analysis of personal genetic, epigenetic, transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolic, and environmental information would dramatically help understanding complex diseases and cancer.
