With cheap sequencing on the horizon, the genetics of genealogy will be in the hands of the consumers that acquire the information, writes blogger Blaine Bettinger at The Genetic Genealogist.

Bettinger believes that education is the key to making full genome sequencing useful to consumers, who might otherwise be afraid to have it done.
