Are you interested in how genomics can be used in clinical care? A recent review in The Lancet discusses future directions for clinical application and discusses how specific technologies can be applied including: family health history, clinically important genomic variation, SNP array genotyping, and genome sequencing. The article also discusses clinically relevant issues such as the disclosure of information to patients, the process of sharing genomic test results with patients, and patient-oriented resources and genomic medicine studies.
