With the completion of the Human Genome Project in April 2003, a vast amount of data became available to the medical community. This data is continually changing how clinicians treat patients and is constantly improving patient management. Michael Murray and Monica Giovanni, authors of the book Clinical Genomics: Practical Applications in Adult Patient Care, joined McGraw-Hill Education’s Insights and Outcomes podcast to discuss why it’s important for physicians and students to have an understanding of genomics, the impact of population genomics and genetic screenings, and how genomics will affect public health on a global scale in the near future.
