His opening editorial can be found here
Hundreds of species’ genomes now have a complete sequence, at least in draft, and they have impacted upon our lives including diagnostics, genomic medicine, agriculture, behaviour and the environment. Accordingly, DNA will prioritise studies in which changes in DNA sequence and structure have phenotypic ramifications, both for the individual and for evolution, thereby taking a “sequence to consequence” and “structure to nature” philosophy. As pioneers in DNA technology, we owe it to the next generation to take the lead in carving a new path that the enigmatic double helix at the core of our essence shows us.
