The completion of sequencing the entire human genome has yielded incredible knowledge about human genes, how they are expressed, how mutations cause various diseases and affect human health, and how genetic variability directs how we diagnose and treat patients today. We are now moving to a new era of personalized medicine that utilizes this information in almost every aspect of medicine.
