100,000 Genome Project & Genetic Medicine

England’s National Health System is among the first national health care systems to adopt pharmacogenomics and genetic sequencing for healthcare applications. Their stated aims are to better diagnose and treat patients, while furthering medical research in a wide array of fields such as cancer treatment, rare diseases, and life threatening genetic conditions.

This video details precisely how genetic medicine is changing lives for the better, and is a perfect example of the benefits of pharmacogenomics.
