Investigators will be well served if they give them full consideration. No doubt about it, research in this realm will be challenging for a number of reasons. Although several strategies now exist to attack this problem genetically, there is another way entirely - one can simply do nothing for the moment. Genomic technology is advancing swiftly and some authorities are projecting that a day when genomes may be deciphered for $1,000 (US) is near. When that cost goal is reached it may mark the emergence of genomics data as a quasi- routine component of medical information employed by practitioners. The plummeting costs of sequencing offer two future possibilities. One; as genomics determinations begin to be reduced to routine medical practice, a hybrid entity might be discovered by simple accident. The second; launching an investigation (although still complicated) will not demand the intervention of a benefactor like Laurance Rockefeller. While taking full account of your ideas regarding assumptions and care to safeguard subject identities, it seems certain more investigators will have access to comprehensive genetic data in the near future. New massively parallel sequencing methods may enable data capture from a single DNA molecule. This will revolutionize genomic comparisons to reference sequences. Such data are going to be important in noting how cancer cells could be destroyed with specific therapeutic molecules or avoiding toxic drug reactions in patients. Some recent issues of the journal Science (4 February 2011, 11 February 2011) and Nature (10 February 2011) have several articles discussing the future of genomics. If the past ten years of the human genome project is any guide, we will not have to wait long for new enabling technologies to appear. An approach may be in hand soon (if it is not already) to confront hypotheses with data. Perhaps we will get closer to a real comprehension of the alien abduction mystery. Some, like Lloyd Pye, are not content to wait. Despite the frustrations, he has worked creatively to obtain the most definitive data possible on the Starchild. It would have been far easier to play the role of an outsider shunned by mainstream science and hit the lecture circuit until he retired. Instead, he chose to get the hard data and answer the question to the best of his ability. In the end, that data will tell all about the Starchild, whether it is what some wish for or not. No matter the outcome, Lloyd Pye has revealed himself to be a man of integrity, determination, and sheer courage. I look forward to seeing what he discovers.
