"Progress in genomics since the completion of the Human Genome Project has exceeded even optimistic expectations in terms of discoveries about the genetic basis of health and disease," NHGRI Director Eric Green said in a statement. "Knowledge about the clinical relevance of genomic variants is growing in leaps and bounds, and the new and exciting challenge is to turn that knowledge into more effective healthcare."

More than a decade after the immense promise unleashed by the completion of Human Genome Project, precision medicine has struggled with its own “last mile.” Despite major leaps in the field as a whole, the technical work needed to integrate a patient’s genomic information into the day-to-day practice of medicine has lagged far behind.
