Setting standards for medical genome sequencing

As described in the editorial “Towards a medical grade human genome sequence”, we are pleased to collaborating with the $10 Million Archon Genomics X PRIZE (AGXP) to develop a set of standards and procedures to help with judging the prize contest. Your comments are needed but should not be limited to this aim alone because the contest is just the beginning of this standard-setting project. For examples, it is likely that the very kinds of genome variation browser and related software that are needed to evaluate the sequencing effort are the spin-off product the community really needs to make medical genomics a reality.
