One clear potential benefit is the possibility of customized treatment depending on your genetic risk factors.I don’t really see a benefit of this. Nobody can change their genes. Others might be less at risk, but that’s statistically and they shouldn’t let down their guard. I looks more like a case of too much research money is thrown at researchers and they are researching for researchings sake.
Basic research is often pooh-poohed, but it's often the building blocks upon which other research is built, which eventually leads to clinical research.
