In the first of this 3 part series, we present an amazing TedTalk by Richard Resnick. He is a builder of genomic software and was involved in The Human Genome Project.

The takeaway from this talk is that:

1. Genetics is changing the field of medicine;

2. Testing is becoming more affordable;

3. How a person is treated for disease is changing.

Our next part in the series will be how to chose a genetic test - what can be done, what cannot be done - and how to understand the basics of results.
