Kevin Davies is the founding editor and current Editor-in-Chief of Bio-IT World. Reporting regularly on all things bioinformatics, he joins us to share his thoughts on the field. This last year has seen a flowering of new companies offering genome interpretation and reporting, a space Davis says is "the most interesting to me personally." But what will success for these early entrants look like?

DTC genomics has changed drastically since Davies covered the field in his 2010 book, The $1,000 Genome. Is the world of DTC genomics over? And what does it mean that CHI, conference producer and owner of Bio-IT World, bought out the Consumer Genetics Conference last year?
