Is this perhaps an attempt to begin some standardization along the line as well?  Well here we go with 2009, more information overload to a degree and not enough folks in government offices to bring this to the table, but it is also the nature of the business, personalized medicine is still very much of a science and as much as we would like, it can’t materialize any faster than R and D can produce.  BD 

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) — The National Institute of Standards and Technology wants genomics, proteomics, and other biomedical researchers to submit ideas about needed advances in personalized medicine, and has asked for white papers detailing these pitches.


The NIST call is part of a new program asking for input on a number of subjects it has deemed “areas of critical national need,” including personalized medicine, and the advice will be used to develop new competitions for funding under its Technology Innovation Program.
