Nearly twenty years ago president Clinton announced the completion of one of the largest public/private collaborative efforts in history, the first draft of the human genome. This work promised to bring forth a new era of totally personalized medicine, where the unique blueprint for your body is used to determine the most effective treatment options for you as an individual. Finally this promise is starting to be realized in the field of oncology, among others. I will give a high level overview of medical genomics with an emphasis on my area of expertise, using it to guide decision making in oncology.
