    After reading the report on the study by the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute on genome sequencing in melanoma, I was wondering if anyone on this board has been part of the study and had their genomes and melanoma mutations sequenced.

    I know genome sequencing is expensive, but they article indicated that there is an ongoing effort to establish further studies of genome sequencing.

     

    Thanks,

    Karen
