The Nobel Prize-winning scientist who helped discover the molecular structure of DNA has become the first person to receive his own personal genome map. The map, a breakdown of his DNA that shows illnesses he is predisposed to contracting, is the first step in making the sequencing of individual human genomes quick, affordable and a routine part of medical care, according to researchers.
