The genome is particularly useful for assessing inherited disease risk and the modulation of drug response. To improve the precision of diagnosis and treatment for personalized medicine, multiple sources of information, including genomic information from high-throughput genomics technologies, will likely need to be combined. In this commentary, Altman argues that this integration of personal genomic
