What can we expect in the in the gene sequencing and what implications that does that have for the future of science in the coming years gene sequencing will come down about a thousand dollars per person.
And in a few decades perhaps maybe 102030 dollars.
In other words all of us we'll have a credit card perhaps with all our dean's -- -- on it.
And this will be the first thing that a doctor looks that this is gonna be your owner's manual.
It's gonna be the guide for any position to find out whether or not you're gonna have cancer alzheimer's heart disease parkinson's.
Or any of the genetic diseases like cystic fibrosis Tay Sachs or or Huntington's disease this is the beginning of economic medicine.
Which which you find.
I mean you know as a sign designer you find it fascinating and -- -- -- but.
Do you find did that down.
It will lead to.
We are not teasing apart the genes that control the aging process about sixty genes have now been identified.
That in animals actually can allow us to extend their life span doubled their lifespan.
With caloric restriction we could even increase the lifespan of any -- by 30% by simply eating 30% less calories.
Now of course -- want to start himself.
So we want to look at it gene called surge to SAR -- that may be partially involved in extending the life -- by eating less calories.
