Euan Ashley on genome sequencing
Cardiologist Euan Ashley, MD, and bioengineer Stephen Quake, PhD, are two members of an extensive team of clinicians, geneticists, bioethicists and bioinformaticians at Stanford's School of Medicine who worked together to devise the first-ever clinical recommendation based on a person's entire genomic sequence. What does this mean to the field of medicine? Are we prepared for this brave new world? In this podcast, Euan Ashley, assistant professor of cardiovascular medicine and director of the Stanford Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy Center, discusses genome sequencing and the myriad of questions we've got to ask as we enter the dawn of a new age in genomics.
