Genomics shifts focus to rare diseases

Abstract

Genome sequencing may finally be living up to its promise of pinpointing genetic mutations that bear on treatment for individual patients. But the breakthroughs are not coming from the DNA analysis of common diseases with complex genetic origins, which has been the obsession of genomics for nearly the past decade. Instead, many genome scientists are turning… (More)
