What exciting developments in genetic testing should we expect to see in 2015? “This year, we will see genomics enabling the wide-spread adoption of precision medicine. And at the same time, we will see the re-emergence of direct-to-consumer genetic testing in entirely new formats. Together, these two developments will accelerate the integration of genomics into health maintenance and health care in startling and exciting ways.”
