Submission + - 100K Californians to be Gene Sequenced (technologyreview.com)

eldavojohn writes: "A hundred thousand elderly Californians (average age 65) will be gene sequenced by the state by using their saliva samples. This would be the first time such a large group has had their genes sequenced and is hoped to be a goldmine for genetic diseases--from cardiovascular diseases to diabetes and even the diseases associated with aging. Kaiser Permanente patients will be involved and they are aiming to have half a million samples ready by 2013. Let's hope that they got permission from the patients' doctors first."
