Human Genomics and Genomics MedicineAuthor(s): Warren Parks
Genomics is a multidisciplinary branch of biology concerned with the structure, function, evolution, mapping, and management of genomes. A genome is a complete set of deoxyribonucleic acid, including all of an organism's genes, as well as its stratified, three-dimensional structural configuration. Genomics, or the study of genes, is making it possible to predict, diagnose, and treat diseases more precisely and precisely than ever before. Three billion base pairs of deoxyribonucleic acid make up an entire genomic sequence.
