  • March 2008: The Genome Gets Personal - Almost PDF icon
    There are many rapid advances in personalized medicine to celebrate. But if the goal is to take full advantage of these discoveries, it is far too early to declare victory. A great deal of complex, groundbreaking, and multidisciplinary research is still needed before personal genomics reaches the mainstream of medicine.

  • March 2008: Key Internet Genetics Resources for the Clinician [jama.ama-assn.org]
    As genomic information and genetic tests become more integrated into medical care, physicians need to know how to access genetic information and resources for their patients. Key Internet Genetics Resources for the Clinician can be used to find information about genetic factors in health and in specific diseases, supportive resources for patients, family history tools, genetic testing, state laws on use of genetic information for insurance and employment, and directories of genetics clinics and genetics professionals.
     
Teri Manolio, M.D., Ph.D.

  • March 2008: How to Interpret a Genome-Wide Association Study [jama.ama-assn.org]
    GWA studies are many steps removed from actual clinical use, and specific applications of GWA findings in prevention and treatment are actively being pursued. These studies mainly represent a valuable discovery tool for examining genomic function and clarifying pathophysiologic mechanisms. This article describes the design, interpretation, application, and limitations of GWA studies for clinicians and scientists for whom this evolving science may have great relevance.
