In parallel, there is a related network function to say, “I’m not as interested in what your unit price will be when I see a patient.

Colors: Sunrise, Yesterday I

Posted on Sunday, Jan 29th 2023

I’m publishing this series on LinkedIn called Colors to explore a topic that I care deeply about: the Renaissance Mind. I am just as passionate about entrepreneurship, technology, and business, as I am about art and culture. In this series, I will typically publish a piece of art – one of my paintings – and I request you to spend a minute or two deeply meditating on it. I urge you to watch your feelings, thoughts, reactions to the piece, and write what comes to you, what thoughts it triggers, in the dialog area. Let us see what stimulation this interaction yields. For today – Sunrise, Yesterday I

Sramana Mitra: What is your analysis of their potential to weave them into society?

Aneesh Chopra: We are going to continue down the curve on the cost side. Early in the Obama administration, it cost roughly $2,000 to sequence a genome. We set a goal to get that profitably delivered for under $100 and we’re well on the way to democratizing gene sequencing.
