10 Reasons the Human Genome Matters in Medicine
In an effort to facilitate discussion about genomics, the Center for Individualized Medicine at Mayo Clinic recently released 10 reasons why the genome matters for diagnosis and treatment.
How the human genome can affect diagnosis and treatment in health will be among the topics discussed at Individualizing Medicine 2013: From Promise to Practice to be held later this month in Rochester, Minnesota. The Mayo Clinic hosted conference will focus on practical applications for integrating genomics and pharmacogenomics to individualize patient care, strategies to overcome obstacles of implementing genomic sequencing for patient care, and how to disseminate genomic information to patients through an ethical, legal, and regulatory framework.
