Genomics in general practice
The terms ‘genetic’ and ‘genomic’ are sometimes used interchangeably. The term genetic refers to the study of single genes, whereas genomic refers to the study of multiple genes. Traditional genetic testing involves the examination of individual genes that are known to cause or increase risk for a particular disease. The new field of genomic testing allows for the testing of a number of different genes at once, even a person’s entire genetic makeup (genome). As such, genomic testing can provide a wealth of information about a patient’s health, including predisposition to common conditions and response to particular drugs. The title for this resource, Genomics in general practice, reflects the possibilities inherent to genomic testing for the practice of medicine.
