Personalized genomics will only be useful for monitoring the prognosis of patients with cancer when it becomes much more cost-effective and quicker to apply. A recent study brings this closer to reality with the development of plasma-seq, a rapid, low-cost method that sequences the circulating DNA present in the peripheral blood of patients with cancer. The power of this technique is demonstrated with the examination of tumor genomes from patients with prostate cancer.
