Sam, should everyone's genomes be sequenced? Will most Americans have their DNA sequenced by 2025,2030?

When will we see the peak of the commercial and medical results of having a sequenced population?

What could prevent us from getting all our genes sequenced? Shouldn't we try to facilitate mass sequencing, for all the medical benefits it could provide? What can YCombinator do to influence corporate and political entities to collaborate and reach a solution to expedite this process?

Yes, I think so, and I'd be surprised if it's not commonplace by 2030.

I think the best thing YC can do is fund startups enabling this (and offering good applications on top of it).
