There are bulls and bears in the world of personal genome sequencing.  Some say affordable genome sequencing is decades away, while others say its just around the corner.  David Schwartz at University of Wiscon is clearly a bull among bulls:

David Schwartz, a professor of genetics at the University of Wisconsin,
Madison, will describe the research at the Human Genome meeting in
Helsinki tomorrow. Within three years, he believes his lab will have a

$100.
