Cliff Reid is the co-founder and CEO of Complete Genomics. The company sets itself apart by first, providing sequencing and data analysis as a service and second, by focusing exclusively on human DNA. Complete Genomics has announced several large scale partnerships this year, including one with Scripps Health for a “wellderly” study, looking at the DNA of healthy individuals with median age of 87 and with Inova Health systems to sequence the genomes of 500 babies and their parents. Cliff shares how he came to DNA sequencing and his thoughts on disruptive technologies. (Recorded Dec, 2011)
