Abstract: 
The falling cost of sequencing means that we are rapidly approaching an era in which access to personalized genomic information is likely to be widespread. Here, four experts with different insights into the field of genomic medicine answer questions about the prospects for using this type of information. Their responses highlight the diverse range of issues that must be addressed - ranging from scientific to ethical and logistical - to ensure that the potential benefits of personal genomic information outweigh the costs to both individuals and societies.
