Functional Genetic Variation Map

Ten years after completion of the human genome project, the promise of its major impact on pharmacogenetics remains unfulfilled. Now, scientists have presented a map that points to the genetic causes of differences between people, reportedly offering the largest-ever dataset linking human genomes to gene activity at the level of RNA. (Learn more about this here.) How do you think this will affect the future of personalized medicine?
