Genetics & Genomics
Sequencing the human genome has generated new interest in examining the role of genetic variation in health and disease. Until recently, human genetics was useful mainly for clinical diagnosis of hereditary disorders. Now genomics - the science of the human genome - promises to provide new insight into the interactions of genetic susceptibility with environment and lifestyle that maintain health or cause disease. Family history bridges genetics and genomics by encompassing the effects of shared genes, shared environments, and complex gene-environment interactions.
