We hear from some that soon each baby's genome will be sequenced at birth. This vast amount of genomic information will be stored in a person's medical record for life and be referenced for personalized healthcare, be it for a diagnostic, a prognostic, or a prediction.

This camp argues that we should deal with patients on a case by case basis using a more targeted approach.
