But the Human Genome Project from my point of view as a healthcare provider has really been on what advantages and what advances can we be able to provide from that. So we really learned a lot about how genes work, how they talk together and how we actually have both health and disease as a consequence of the Human Genome Project. So really understanding this complex interaction is one of the most exciting things as well. What this really has done for healthcare is allowed us to individualize our healthcare. To be able to say for one person against another that their genes might, in fact, give them a basis to be healthier or actually, might have more problems with illness. So this individualization is what's really new and what's been important.
