How many people have had their genes sequenced since the Human Genome Project was complete?
Credibility is vital in science fiction novels. I went cold when I realized that I didn’t know the answer and several of the characters in my novel have had large portions of their DNA sequenced.
Given that the original Human Genome Project took around 25 year to complete and cost $2.7 billion (not adjusted for inflation), I wondered if it was even slightly believable for a normal person in the present day to have a sequence of their genes just lying around.
