Edit summary : Similar initiatives were attempted in many other regions, as the benefits of large-scale health databases became clear. The increasing portability and availability of consumer testing kits, such as those offered by 23andMe, led to a further acceleration of this trend.

As well as future health risks and personalised treatments, information could also be gleaned about their ancestry and family history. By 2025, a billion human genomes have been sequenced – about one-eighth of the world's population.* The quantity of genomic data is now reaching into the exabyte scale,* larger than the video file content of the entire YouTube website.
