“Alexa, what’s my genetic risk for heart disease and should I be taking a statin?” Virtual assistants can guide us through CPR during emergencies and help manage diabetes, so a query into our personal genome is not far off. Genetic profiling is growing with projections that more than a billion people will have their genomes sequenced by 2025. But outside of prenatal and hereditary cancer screening, cancer treatment, and rare disease diagnosis, genetic data are infrequently used for routine preventive or therapeutic medical plans.
