The human genome contains 3 billion chemical nucleotide bases (A, C, T, and G). The average gene consists of 3,000 bases, but sizes vary greatly. The largest known human gene is dystrophin at 2.4 million bases. The total number of genes is estimated at 30,000—much lower than previous estimates of 80-140,000. Almost all (99.9%) nucleotide bases are exactly the same in all people. The functions are unknown for over 50% of discovered genes.

You Can Get Your Whole HUMAN Genome Sequenced. But Should You? |WIRED The small study identified 20% with disease but not yet w/symptoms. Most docs in a region w/knowledge of human DNA testing did correct thing w the data & the sequenced group made more changes for their health; exercising more, eating better, taking vits. Wonder what happens w/microbiome seq?
