The Precise–and Wild–Genomics Revolution



IEEE PULSE

 As genetics and environment come together, we will have a more detailed, data-driven account of the complex relationship between nature and nurture and how they express themselves as both health and disease.
  Besides a deficit of knowledge about which tests to order, once a test is ordered, the results are not necessarily clear-cut. It’s not a matter of simply finding out whether the patient has a mutation or not. “Those test results,” Diamond says, “… if you ever saw the results, they’re … gobbledygook. It doesn’t just come back and say, ‘Yes, [the] patient has ovarian cancer risk.’”
