Unlocking the Secrets of the Human Genome

By

Individualized medicine promises to play a key role in the future of health care. At the Mayo Clinic Center for Individualized Medicine, we’re gathering  knowledge about a patient’s genome (or DNA) to diagnose, predict, treat and prevent disease – allowing us to deliver medical care tailored to the patient’s genomic make-up. With better diagnoses, earlier interventions, more-efficient […]
