Submitted by Ravenscroftj

This is needless to say, a free service to UK citizens. According to the BBC News website, "London's Royal Brompton Hospital said the project would give doctors a better understanding of the inherited factors that help trigger heart disease... In all 10,000 patients will have their genes sequenced at the Royal Brompton Hospital, which specialises in the treatment of heart and lung conditions, over the next 10 years. ""
