It’s still in its infancy, but scientists do a variation of this when they type a tumor for chemotherapy treatment. A Stanford doctor let his colleagues map his complete genetic makeup and that of his mothers.
They then tracked him for more than a year constantly taking blood and studying hi to find more information about personalized medicine. Other than a few surprises such as his risk for type II diabetes and high cholesterol, there wasn’t new information that came from the investigation. The result of the study isn’t what makes it interesting, but that a scientist offered to experiment on himself is.
