The availability of molecular genetic tests for the identification of mutant gene carriers, and for assessing individual genetic response to pharmacologic agents, infectious agents, and other environmental exposures, is expected to result in the increased use of the molecular genetic testing laboratory by primary care physicians. However, a number of… CONTINUE READING
