Jason Bobe is a tremendous writer.

When reading blogs all the time. Well, not all the time but the 5 minutes in the AM and the 20 minutes I have each night. I continue to be amazed by the breadth of knowledge that the DNANetwork has. In addition, I am blown away by the writing ability of some.

The person who I bring to your attention is Jason Bobe over at The Personal Genome
Here is a snippet of what he pens (types)

The era of personal genomics will transform our notions of risk in many ways. In the realm of health and medicine, we will soon have much more specific information about our baseline risk for a health outcome, such as a disease or a pharmaceutical drug response, and how it is influenced by our DNA and modulated by other factors like physiology, lifestyle, and environment. At some point, we will have health risk profiles that prioritize and sort risks according to severity, immediacy, and whether effective strategies are available for managing them with pharmaceuticals, lifestyle modifications, or other medical interventions. There might even be a richter scale for genomics one day. This vision of the future is often referred to as “personalized medicine”.

Succinct, Explanatory, Brilliant if you ask me. He wonderfully explains a topic and breaks it down nicely. He brings issues to the forefront and posits answers.

I wish I had more time. I was invited to participate in Second Life. I would have loved to. Unfortunately I am too busy to have a first life....If you get the chance check out his recent post on virtual conferencing.

Lastly I want to point you in the direction of the SACGHS. If anyone has a big say in how the government will set up personalized medicine, it is this group. I have told you before about how they advise the Secretary of HHS. There latest meeting was last month and I am digesting all the data. Stay tuned.....
